Life Expectancy Going Down In United States

Posted Aug 26 2008 4:34pm

I was sitting in a meeting today and the speaker said something that caught everyone's attention. He basically said that for the first time since medical statistics have been kept on life expectancy in the United States, life expectancy will go down starting with this generation. That generation is my kid's and your kid's generation. The reason? Obesity. Obesity and the diseases it causes is now the number one preventable condition that causes death in this country. What can you do about this? Exercise regularly, eat healthier and make sure your kids do the same. And help and/or encourage as many people in your corner of the world to live healthier. In my opinion, that's the only way to reverse the obesity epidemic.
