Compared to other developed, advanced countries, the life expectancy for U.S. citizens is downright terrible. The United States ranks #43 in terms of life expectancy according to the World Factbook, a reference resource curated by the CIA. The below chart compares the U.S. with several other advanced countries:
There are many reasons cited. Harvard Health suggests Covid-19, drug overdoses, and accidental injuries. The National Research Council says one of the reasons why life expectancy in the United States is lower than in other industrialized nations is because of an under-performing healthcare system. Other significant factors in life expectancy include gender, diet and nutrition, genetics, lifestyle, access to health care, hygiene, exercise, and crime rates.
If you haven't heard of Blue Zones yet, I highly recommend you take some time to explore them. The world's longest living people are from all types of different regions but have 9 commonalities: Move naturally, A purpose, Down Shift, 80% Rule, Eat mostly vegetables, Drink alcohol moderately, Attend faith-based services regularly, Put their loved ones first, and have a close circle of friends. These are all things that are in your control.
Much of what the experts are saying that's causing our decline is beyond our immediate control. Greedy pharmaceutical companies, government regulations, expensive health insurance, toxins in our food, water, air, and products, and indifference to our own health have all contributed to our decline in life expectancy. Do you have any control over the toxins in your food, air, products you bring into your home, etc? The answer in the short-term is, of course, no. Is there a way to take your health into your own hands? You can start with your choice of medications and food choices.
