We had the same life expectancy as Chinese men, which was two years shorter than Cuban men, 6 years shorter than Korean men, 5 years shorter than Norwegian or Swiss or Australian men, and 9 years shorter than men in Qatar and San Marino.

 

Life Expectancy DECREASES 3 Years in a Row after ACA

 

Most of the following data comes directly from CNN, and some of their references.

Between 1969 when our life expectancy was 66.8, and 2014 when it was 76.5, our life expectancy increased steadily for 45 years, at a solid 0.22 per year. This was not great, but it also was not the worst in the world.

But that year, 4 years after the passage of the ACA, it suddenly reversed, and we already know that by the end of 2018, we will have had 5 years straight of decreasing life expectancy which NO other country, not even Syria, has had.

IF our male life expectancy rate decrease continues to decrease at a linear rate, it will drop from 76.1 in 2016 to 75.7 in 2018, and (67.7 - 12 x 0.2 = 2.4) 73.3 years, in 2030. this is lower than it was in 1997, and 2 years lower than it will be in war torn Mexico.

BUT the vast majority of our opioid deaths aren't even included in these calculations, and JUST the 70,000 sudden increase in our mortality rate, equates to at least a 4 year decrease in life expectancy, which would put us at 71.7.

And this is a real conservative estimate. I really believe the decrease will be even more dramatic than our increase.

 

Only 2 countries, Libya and Syria (thanks to Obama policies), did not experience an increase in life expectancy during the Obama Administration. But even Libya did not see a decrease like we did (it was flat), whereas Syria saw a SIX YEAR DECREASE.

This put China on track for THIS YEAR having a longer life expectancy than us.

Zimbabwe had a record 11 year increase, Zambia and Malawi 7 years, Rwanda and Kenya and Congo 6 years, Burkino Faso 5 years, Iran 4 years, even North Korea and Iraq INCREASED by 3 years, AND MEXICO BY TWO YEARS.

This does not even take into account the following observation that we have now had 3 years with decreasing life expectancy AFTER the WHO data was collected.

U.S. Life Expectancy Will Likely Decline For Third Straight Year

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS (MIKE STOBBE)

New York (AP) -- The U.S. death rate rose last year, and 2017 likely will mark the third straight year of decline in American life expectancy, according to preliminary data.�

It also DOES NOT consider that the sudden, unexpected 70,000 death increase in our death rate due solely to the opioid epidemic WILL quickly decrease our life expectancy by at least another 3 years. This will put us lower than 73, which is lower than Uruguay and Vietnam.

 

ACTUALLY, U.S. Life Expectancy WILL Have Decreased 5 Years in a Row by 2018, From 2014 to 2018 

Continued decline the US and UK

https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/16/health/life-expectancy-uk-us-drop-study-intl/index.html

Most countries that demonstrated overall declines between 2014 and 2015 and then rebounded between 2015 and 2016, showing gains in life expectancy to make up for the loss.
But the US and the UK were exceptions to this trend, continuing to show declines in life expectancy in more recent years.
Social inequality, poverty and the declining quality of health-care provision in the US and the UK may be perpetuating this stagnation and decline in life expectancy, suggests Jasilionis. The life expectancy for men and women in the US in 2016 was 76.4 and 81.4 years, while in the UK, those numbers stood at 79.04 and 82.72.
The opioid crisis may be a large contributor to declining rates of life expectancy in the US, but according to a another study by the British Medical Journal published Thursday, mortality rates for organ diseases involving the lungs, heart and other parts of the body have also increased significantly.
Jasilionis adds that unequal access to health care in the US as well as wide variations in its quality may be contributing the country's underperformance in life expectancy.
In the UK, disadvantaged populations who suffer disproportionally from certain social factors, such as poverty, may be driving down life expectancy, Jasilionis said.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Relative to Chinese and Korean men, each one percent increase in health care expenditures as a percent of GDP, resulted in a TWO YEAR decrease in life expectancy for White American men.

Relative to Qatar, Kuwait, Hong Kong, and Italy, it resulted in a one year decrease in life expectancy.

Relative to Australia, the Central African Republic, and Ireland, it resulted in a decrease of life expectancy of half a year.

There are NO exceptions to the rule that every other male on the planet experienced a much greater increase in life expectancy than American White men, at a cost from at least ONE THIRD to as much as ONE TENTH as much.


In 52 years, between 1960 and 2012, the life expectancy of American men increased 8 years, from 68 to 76 (and 6 years for White men, from 68 to 74)
Relative to China:
42 to 74
From 26 years longer to exactly the same, a 26 year swing.
Relative to Korea:
50 to 78
From 18 years longer to 4 years shorter, a 22 year swing.
Relative to Qatar
59 to 78
From 9 years longer to 4 years shorter, a 13 year swing.
Relative to the Central African Republic
35 to 48
From 33 years longer to 26 years longer, a 7 year swing.
Relative to Italy:
67 to 81
From 1 year longer to 7 years shorter, an 8 year swing.
Relative to Ireland:
68 to 79
From equal to 5 years shorter, a 5 year swing.
Relative to Kuwait:
59 to 73
From 9 year longer to 1 year shorter, a 10 year swing.
Relative to Australia:
68 to 80
From equal to 6 years shorter, a 6 year swing.
Relative to Hong Kong:
63 to 81
From 5 years longer to 7 years longer, a 12 year swing.
