obesity is lowering the life expectancy in the u.s.

TIME HealthFor more, visit TIME Health.Rising obesity rates in the U.S. may be responsible for as many as 186,000 deaths per year, according to a new analysis.The U.S. has seen only relatively modest improvements in mortality rates over the past couple decades, despite public health victories including major reductions in smoking. Death rates tied to cardiovascular disease, cancer and other chronic illnesses, for example, declined more slowly in the U.S. than in any of 13 similarly developed nations between 1999 and 2015.Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and the Boston University School of Public Health thought rising obesity rates might have something to do with it, so they pored over two subsequent editions of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Study (NHANES) and

county-by-county disparities in life expectancy are large—20yrs—and growing

EnlargephotosavvyShare this storyFor having the largest economy in the world and spending the most on health care, the US has lousy health outcomes. Overall, the US has a 79-year life expectancy, which falls 42nd worldwide, far below Monaco’s top 89-year life expectancy. When you look closer, things only get worse.Depending on which US county you live in, your life expectancy can vary by a whopping two decades. And that disparity is getting worse, according to a new analysis in JAMA Internal Medicine.Between 1980 and 2014, life expectancy overall has increased by about 5.3 years in the States. But, that “masks massive variation at the county level,” according to the authors of the new study, led by researchers at the University of Washington. During the study’s time frame, counties in cent

life expectancy in russia reaches 72 years for first time

The average life expectancy in Russia has for the first time exceeded 72 years, deputy prime minister Olga Golodets said on Monday. According to data from the federal statistics agency Rosstat, the average life expectancy reached 72.4 in the first half year of 2017, she was cited as saying by the state-run RIA Novosti news agency.She attributed the new figures to a lower death rate, which in the first six months of this year was 12.9, compared to 13.2 in the same period last year.Despite reaching the benchmark, Russia still lags behind many other countries. In 2015, the life expectancy in the United States was 78.8 and German citizens reached on average 80.7 years of age, statistics from the OECD show.  New plans laid out by the Russian government aim to raise the life expectancy to 76 yea

life expectancy trends tied to 2016 voting choices

Ever since the unexpected results of the 2016 presidential election, political analysts have sought to understand what factors played into voters' decision making. Now, a new study by a Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH) researcher shows how voting patterns correlated with the nation's growing geographic health divides, with Donald Trump winning more votes in counties that have seen lower gains in life expectancy.Writing in the American Journal of Public Health, Jacob Bor, assistant professor of global health at BUSPH, reviewed county-level voting data from the 2008 and 2016 presidential elections and county-level estimates of life expectancy at birth for 1980 and 2014 from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.Life expectancy in the US rose by about five years bet

life expectancy in britain 'grinding to a halt'

Rises in life expectancy are "grinding to a halt" after more than a century of continuous progress.Using Office for National Statistics projections for babies born since 2000, Sir Michael Marmot, an expert from University College London who has advised both the government and the World Health Organisation, has shown that the rate of increase in life expectancy has nearly halved since 2010 in England.Between 2000 and 2015, life expectancy at birth increased by one year every five years for women and by one year every 3.5 years for men, compared to one year every 10 years for women and one for every six for men post-2010. Life expectancy in Britain currently stands at 79 for men, and 82 for women.Marmot said the "deeply concerning" findings were "historically highly unusual" and while he sai

moscow life expectancy climbs to 77 years

Life expectancy for Muscovites has climbed to 77 years thanks to improving healthcare, the city’s mayor announced on Tuesday.Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said that city was closing the gap between life expectancy in the Russian capital and other eastern European countries.The average life expectancy for Muscovites has increased by three years since 2010, bringing residents in line with countries such as  Slovakia and Estonia, according to data from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).Sobyanin credited the change to improving healthcare services and more accessible high-tech medical procedures.“There are still a lot of problems to solve, more specifically raising salaries for medical staff, improving vocational training and building more medical centers,” Sobya

dutch retirement age frozen due to new life expectancy figures

Developments in Dutch life expectancy mean the state pension age will not be increased in 2023, social affairs minister Wouter Koolmees confirmed on Friday.Last November the government decided to increase the state pension age in 2022 to 67 years and three months, based on new life expectancy figures.National statistics office CBS said on Friday that life expectancy in the Netherlands at age 65 will increase by 20.5 years in 2023. But that is slightly lower than the 2016 forecast of 20.7 years, which means the state pension age will not go up.Advances in medical know-how and technology combined with better hygiene, food and living conditions have added years to average life expectancy in the Netherlands.Increasingly larger numbers of the over-65s are living longer.

Russian life expectancy has reached
record highs, new data has revealed.Russians born in 2016 are expected to
live 71.87 years on average, according to state statistics agency
Rosstat. Women still outlast men by several years, with the average
Russian female living to 77.06, compared to 66.5 years for males.The southern Russian region of
Ingushetia boasted the highest life expectancy in the country, with
residents expected to live 80.8 years on average. It was followed by
Dagestan and Moscow, where newborns are predicted to live 77.2 years and 77 years respectively.Areas in Siberia and Russia's Far East found themselves at the bottom of the table, with life expectancy for residents of the remote Tyva region languishing at 64.2 years. Children born in the Chukotka autonomous distric

retirement age expected to be frozen due to new life expectancy figures

Developments in Dutch life expectancy mean it is unlikely that the state pension age will be further increased in 2023, according to media reports on Friday.Last November the government decided to increase the state pension age in 2022 to 67 years and three months, based on new life expectancy figures. The new prognosis will determine if the pension age rises again in 2023.National statistics office CBS said on Friday that life expectancy in the Netherlands at age 65 will increase by 20.5 years in 2023. But that is slightly lower than the 2016 forecast of 20.7 years which means the state pension age is likely to be frozen.Advances in medical know-how and technology combined with better hygiene, food and living conditions have added years to average life expectancy in the Netherlands.Increa

state pension age 'could rise above life expectancy in poorer areas'

Keeping a generous triple-lock on the state pension will mean many people in poorer areas die before they receive any payouts, says a new report.See related What is the state pension triple lock and why does it matter?According to the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), which carried out the study for the parliamentary pensions committee, the retirement age will have to rise to 70.5 by 2060 in order to keep pension spending at six per cent of GDP and maintain the triple-lock increases.Average male life expectancy is currently below that level in many poorer parts of Britain, says the BBC, including 162 council areas in Scotland.It adds that the lowest male life expectancy "was 62.5 years in the Parkhead West and Barrowfield area of Glasgow. In that area, female life expectancy was 70.1 yea

your kids aren't killing you

Having children is associated with an increase in life expectancy, according to a new study. Sometimes - a lot of times - it feels as if being a parent is shaving years off your life, but a new study suggests that's not the case.In fact, just the opposite may be true.In a paper published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, a team of Swedish researchers report that having kids is associated with an increase in life expectancy, especially as we age.According to the new work, 60-year-old women with children had a remaining life expectancy of 24.6 years, compared with 23.1 years for those who do not have children.For men, the difference was even greater.Sixty-year-old men with children were expected to live for another 20.2 years on average, whereas those without children were

smoking leads to less increase in life expectancy for less educated women

Life expectancy in Sweden has risen steadily during the last few decades for most groups. One exception is women whose highest educational level is compulsory school. This is mostly because of smoking, says a new dissertation in sociology."Life expectancy has stayed level in the last 20-30 years for women with only a compulsory schooling in Sweden, but it's increased for other social groups. A big piece of this puzzle is smoking," say Olof Östergren, sociology researcher at Stockholm University.The study is based on data from the registries of causes of death and education for all Swedes who were 30-74 years old between 1991 and 2008. The research shows that inequality in longevity between different groups have increased among women during this period.The statistics show that anticipated l

russian scientist predicts plummet in global life expectancy

Humans’ life expectancy will fall drastically in the coming decades, a prominent Russian medical scientist said Friday.“A man couldn’t live more than 20 years because of new viral diseases,”  Irina Chukayeva told Medikforum.ru, adding her estimate was based on irrefutable facts and detailed research.”In two decades, only two new antibiotics had been created while the number of new viruses and bacteria rose, Chukayeva said. The pace of scientific research in pharmacology lags behind the emergence of new viral strains, the 67-year-old cardiologist and member of the Russian Public Chamber,  warned. Chukayeva frequently publishes predictions on the future of mankind. In 2014, she warned that 10 percent of global population would suffer from diabetes by 2030.Twenty years would be a normal life

live longer and prosper? yes, we will | health

It’s true that in some countries, the improvements in life expectancy will not be as great as the incredible leaps enjoyed by South Koreans. For example, life expectancy is set to rise much more slowly in the USA, Japan (the current global longevity champions), Sweden, Greece, Macedonia and Serbia. In some countries, this will be the product of relatively poorer economic conditions, in others down to a limited ability to extend life even further than is already the case. But, the study notes: ‘Life expectancy is projected to increase in all 35 countries with a probability of at least 65 per cent for women and 85 per cent for men.’These are simply forecasts, of course. Unforeseen factors like disease outbreaks or war could change the outcomes. On the other hand, there could be a major medic

indigenous life expectancy gap grows in western australia

The Aboriginal Health Council of WA is demanding urgent support for community health as the disparity between the life expectancy of Aboriginal and non- Aboriginal West Australians surges, bucking a national trend.The life expectancy gap between indigenous and non-indigenous West Australians increased from 14.7 years to 15.1 years in men and 12.9 years to 13.5 years in women in a comparison of data between 2005-2007 and 2010-2012, an Australian Institute of Health and Welfare report found.

u.s. life expectancy dropped again in 2016

TIME HealthFor more, visit TIME Health.Life expectancy in the U.S. dropped slightly for the second year in a row, likely fueled in part by an uptick in drug overdoses.The CDC on Thursday released updated data on death rates and life expectancy in the U.S., and reported that, as of 2016, Americans are expected to live until 78.6 years of age, down from 78.7 years in 2015. While that drop may not seem like much, it’s the second time in as many years life expectancy has gone down: In 2014, the figure was projected at 78.9 years.A slight reshuffling in the top 10 causes of death may explain the downward trend. Unintentional injuries — a category that includes drug overdoses — overtook chronic lower respiratory diseases as the country’s third largest cause of death, according to the report, poi

presstv-uk sixth fattest nation in the world: study

A new study finds that Britain is the most obese country in Western Europe and the sixth fattest nation in the world, with levels of obesity growing faster than in the United States.According to the survey conducted by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), obesity rates in Britain have doubled over the past two decades.The study, which tracks 35 industrialized nations, shows 63 percent of British adults are overweight, making the country the sixth heaviest nation in the world, coming behind Mexico, the US, New Zealand, Finland and Australia. “Obesity has risen sharply since 1990, when it affected only 14 percent of adults,” said the OECD’s annual “Health at a Glance” report.“The overall health of British people is similar to the OECD average, considering life ex

increased air pollution cuts victims' lifespan by a decade, costing billions

One of the benefits to cutting fossil fuel consumption is lowering air pollution. A new study in the August issue of Ecological Indicators shows that, on average, an increase in pollution particles in the air of 10 micrograms per cubic meter cuts victims' life expectancy by 9-11 years - more than previously thought. But the estimated economic cost of this differs wildly between the US and the EU because of the calculations used.

presstv-‘drug abuse, wealth gap reducing us life expectancy’

Deaths from drug overdoses, the growing wealth inequality, rising poverty and a poor diet are among the main factors reducing life expectancy in the United States in recent years, an American analyst says.“It’s rare that you see a country that’s classified as a First World nation, or a high-income nation, actually experience a decline in life expectancy and they're several reasons for this,” said Keith Preston, chief editor of AttacktheSystem.com.“It’s been pointed that the rate of drug overdoses has increased dramatically in recent years, largely through the widespread use of opioid drugs,” Preston said in an interview with Press TV on Thursday.“The rate of life expectancy is declining for other reasons,” including the widening wealth gap, increasing poverty, heart disease and poor dietar

presstv-opioid crisis lowers us life expectancy: study

The US opioid drug epidemic, which killed over 33,000 people in 2015, is reducing the average life expectancy in the country, new research from the US government shows.The skyrocketing number of opioid deaths in the US has shaved more than two months off the average American lifespan, according to a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), published Tuesday by the Journal of the American Medical Association.The CDC study found that from 2000 to 2015, the average American life expectancy grew overall from 77 years to 79 years, but that the astounding rise in opioid-related deaths shaved 2.5 months off this improvement.While overdose deaths in general in the US more than doubled in that 15-year span, opioid overdoses more than tripled, the study reported.No other facto

new hiv drugs raise life expectancy to 'near normal'

Life expectancy for people with HIV is now nearly normal if they take the latest medication, say scientists.A study in The Lancet found 20-year-olds who began antiretroviral therapy in 2010 will live ten years longer than those who began using it in 1996.Researchers at the University of Bristol examined the cases of 88,500 people from Europe and North America and based their life-expectancy predictions on death rates during the three years of follow-up after drug treatment was started, They said the success of the latest drug treatments was a result of them having fewer side effects and being more efficient at preventing the virus from replicating in the body, reports the BBC.However, charities warned that a large number of people were still unaware they have the virus. Doctors also said t

uk health spending needs to grow faster than gdp

The NHS is frequently in the news about its ongoing funding crisis. New research suggests demand for health services is set to continue to grow faster than GDP per head in all developed countries around the world. Along with a paper about the J-value model for life-expectancy growth in industrialised countries, the research establishes a reason why people in the UK will want to spend an increasing fraction of their income on health services.The J-value, a new method pioneered by Professor Philip Thomas from the University of Bristol, is used to assess how much should be spent to protect human life. It has been validated across 180 nations out of the 193 members of the United Nations and has now been verified against UK data for life expectancy at birth. Using the growth in the UK's GDP per

presstv-iran’s life expectancy now at 75.6 years

Iran says life expectancy in the country has already reached 75.6 years in what the government says is a result of improved public access to health services over the past years. The figure that was highlighted in a report by the government of President Hassan Rouhani to the nation remained almost unchanged from that of last year.   In 2015, Iran’s life expectancy stood at 75.5 years and in 2014 at 74 years. The widest increase occurred between 2005 when it stood at 70.4 years and 2011 when it reached 74 years. The report - that was meant to inform the nation about the first 100-day performance in office of President Rouhani since re-election in June - attributed the high life expectancy in the country to the easy access of Iranians to required health services.
