Check out this story that I read about a week or so ago about life expectancies increasing around the globe: Life Expectancy up Worldwide
This is always good to hear. I do not have much to say about this, except for a couple of rhetorical questions:
- Why does the United States not make the top 10 for females OR males?
- Why is it that all of the countries in which life expectancy is below 55 are in Africa? (Being african-american, this bothers me).
