The expiry date of man: a synthesis of evolutionary biology and public health. (1/1743)

In industrialised countries, mortality and morbidity are dominated by age related chronic degenerative diseases. The health and health care needs of future populations will be heavily determined by these conditions of old age. Two opposite scenarios of future morbidity exist: morbidity might decrease ("compress"), because life span is limited, and the incidence of disease is postponed. Or morbidity might increase ("expand"), because death is delayed more than disease incidence. Optimality theory in evolutionary biology explains senescence as a by product of an optimised life history. The theory clarifies how senescence is timed by the competing needs for reproduction and survival, and why this leads to a generalised deterioration of many functions at many levels. As death and disease are not independent, future morbidity will depend on duration and severity of the process of senescence, partly determined by health care, palliating the disease severity but increasing the disease duration by postponing death. Even if morbidity might be compressed, health care needs will surely expand.  (+info)

Prediction of life expectancy in patients with primary pulmonary hypertension. A retrospective nationwide survey from 1980-1990. (2/1743)

Primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) is a progressive disease of unknown etiology usually followed by death within 5 years after diagnosis. Although heart-lung or lung transplantation is now offered to patients with advanced PPH, adequate criteria assessing an accurate prediction of life expectancy in PPH has been difficult to establish. The aims of this study were to identify the characteristic features associated with a poor prognosis in patients with PPH, and to attempt to establish an individual prognostic index that predicts with great accuracy survival or death of PPH after one year, thereby helping to define criteria for patient selection for transplantation. In 1991, a retrospective nation-wide survey on PPH was conducted in Japan, and the clinical and cardiorespiratory variables of 223 PPH cases (female; 144, male; 79) in the period from 1980-1990 were obtained. The mean pulmonary arterial pressure (PPA) was 57.5+/-17.2 mm Hg (mean+/-SD), and the overall median survival time was 32.5 months since the first diagnostic catheterization. The characteristic features of 61 patients who died within one year of catheterization (Nonsurvivors group) were compared to 141 patients who survived one year or more from the time of catheterization (Survivors group). Among several clinical and cardiorespiratory variables, heart rate, PPA, right atrial pressure (PRA), stroke volume index (SI), pulmonary vascular resistance, and partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PaCO2) were significantly different between the two groups. As the independent factors, PPA, PRA, SI, and PaCO2 were selected for the multiple logistic analysis. Using a 0.7 probability cut-point to separate Nonsurvivors from Survivors, 84.6% of Nonsurvivors and Survivors could be correctly predicted from this logistic regression equation. Predictive equations like the present preliminary one can be used in the future to better assess life expectancy in patients with PPH in whom transplantation will be considered.  (+info)

Lack of inhibitory effects of the Ju-myo protein on development of glutathione S-transferase placental form-positive foci in the male F344 rat liver. (3/1743)

The effects of the 77 kDa Ju-myo protein, isolated from Drosophila melanogaster, on the development of glutathione S-transferase placental form (GST-P) positive foci in the male F344 rat liver were evaluated using a medium-term bioassay system. No modifying potential was evident in terms of the numbers or areas of GST-P positive foci. Ju-myo protein did not exert any influence on cell proliferation, as reflected by ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) or spermidine/spermine N1-acetyltransferase (SAT) activity and BrdU labeling. These results demonstrated that Ju-myo protein is unlikely to have inhibitory or promoting effects on rat liver carcinogenesis.  (+info)

Impact of market value on human mate choice decisions. (4/1743)

Mate choice strategies are a process of negotiation in which individuals make bids that are constrained by their status in the market place. Humans provide an unusual perspective on this because we can measure their explicitly expressed preferences before they are forced to make any choices. We use advertisements placed in newspaper personal columns to examine, first, the extent to which evolutionary considerations affect the level of competition (or market value) during the reproductively active period of people's lives and, second, the extent to which market value influences individual's willingness to make strong demands of prospective mates. We show that female market value is determined principally by women's fecundity (and, to a lesser extent, reproductive value), while male market value is determined by men's earning potential and the risk of future pairbond termination (the conjoint probability that the male will either die or divorce his partner during the next 20 years). We then show that these selection preferences strongly influence the levels of demands that men and women make of prospective partners (although older males tend to overestimate their market value).  (+info)

Light on population health status. (5/1743)

A new approach to illustrating and analysing health status is presented which allows comparisons of various aspects of health in a population at different times and in different populations during given periods. Both quantitative and qualitative elements can be represented, the impact of interventions can be monitored, and the extent to which objectives are achieved can be assessed. The practical application of the approach is demonstrated with reference to the health profiles to Tunisia in 1966 and 1994.  (+info)

Survival of healthy older people. (7/1743)

The purpose of this study was to discover any relationships which might exist between measurable variables recorded when a healthy group of men and women, aged 70 years and over, were examined and their subsequent survival time. It was found that height, body weight, systolic and diastolic blood pressures, haemoglobin, hand grip power, cardiothoracic ratio, and pulse rate are of no predictive value in the estimation of survival time. Survival is not influenced by marital status or occupational class. For both sexes the degree of kyphosis and age are useful predictive criteria in respect of survival time. However, much research work requires to be done to explain why many people die at the time they do.  (+info)

Does over-the-counter nicotine replacement therapy improve smokers' life expectancy? (8/1743)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the public health benefits of making nicotine replacement therapy available without prescription, in terms of number of quitters and life expectancy. DESIGN: A decision-analytic model was developed to compare the policy of over-the-counter (OTC) availability of nicotine replacement therapy with that of prescription ([symbol: see text]) availability for the adult smoking population in the United States. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Long-term (six-month) quit rates, life expectancy, and smoking attributable mortality (SAM) rates. RESULTS: OTC availability of nicotine replacement therapy would result in 91,151 additional successful quitters over a six-month period, and a cumulative total of approximately 1.7 million additional quitters over 25 years. All-cause SAM would decrease by 348 deaths per year and 2940 deaths per year at six months and five years, respectively. Relative to [symbol: see text] nicotine replacement therapy availability, OTC availability would result in an average gain in life expectancy across the entire adult smoking population of 0.196 years per smoker. In sensitivity analyses, the benefits of OTC availability were evident across a wide range of changes in baseline parameters. CONCLUSIONS: Compared with [symbol: see text] availability of nicotine replacement therapy, OTC availability would result in more successful quitters, fewer smoking-attributable deaths, and increased life expectancy for current smokers.  (+info)

Downloadable (with restrictions)! To examine change from 1991 to 2001 in disability-free life expectancy in the age range 60-90 by gender, race, and education in the United States. Mortality is estimated over two 10-year follow-up periods for persons in the National Health Interview Surveys of 1986/1987 and 1996/1997. Vital status is ascertained through the National Death Index. Disability prevalence is estimated from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys of 1988-1994 and 1999-2002. Disability is defined as ability to perform four activities of daily living without difficulty. Disability-free life expectancy increased only among white men. Disabled life expectancy increased for all groups-black and white men and women. Racial differences in disability-free life expectancy widened among men; gender differences were reduced among whites. Expansion of socioeconomic differentials in disability-free life at older ages occurred among white men and women and black women. The 1990s was a period

The NA-ACCORD team concluded that a 20-year-old HIV-positive individual on ART in the US or Canada is expected to live into their early 70s, a life expectancy approaching that in the general population. But HIV-positive women, nonwhites, injection drug users, and people starting ART with fewer than 350 CD4s still trail HIV-positive comparison groups and the general population in life expectancy........Overall life expectancy at age 20 rose from 36.1 in 2000-2002 to 45.2 in 2003-2005, and to 51.4 in 2006-2007. The 2006-2007 estimate means a 20-year-old starting antiretroviral therapy in those years could expect to live to age 71.4. Women and men had comparable life expectancy in the first two study periods (2000-2002 and 2003-2005), but men had a 6.1-year longer life expectancy in 2006-2007 (53.4 versus 47.3).......Among men infected during sex with men, life expectancy at age 20 climbed from 53.3 in 2000-2002 to 57.4 in 2003-2005 and to 69.3 in 2006-20007.

Global life expectancy has risen by more than six years since 1990 as healthy life expectancy grows; ischemic heart disease, lower respiratory infections, and stroke cause the most health loss around the world. People around the world are living longer, even in some of the poorest countries, but a complex mix of fatal and nonfatal ailments causes a tremendous amount of health loss, according to a new analysis of all major diseases and injuries in 188 countries. Thanks to marked declines in death and illness caused by HIV/AIDS and malaria in the past decade and significant advances made in addressing communicable, maternal, neonatal, and nutritional disorders, health has improved significantly around the world. Global life expectancy at birth for both sexes rose by 6.2 years (from 65.3 in 1990 to 71.5 in 2013), while healthy life expectancy, or HALE, at birth rose by 5.4 years (from 56.9 in 1990 to 62.3 in 2013).

Womens life expectancy has been increasing in the EU-28 and exceeds that of men. In 2013, the average life expectancy at birth in the EU-28 was 83.1 years of age for women and 77.5 years for men. However, despite longer life expectancy, women spend more of their lives in disability and ill health. In 2013, the number of healthy life years (HLYs) at birth was estimated at 61.4 years for men and 61.5 years for women in the EU-28. This represented approximately 79% and 74% of total life expectancy for women and men. The gender gap was considerably smaller in terms of healthy life years than it was for overall life expectancy. This means that women suffer from health problems at a later age but for a longer time than men.. While life expectancy rates are higher for women than for men in the EU, these differences decrease as educational attainment rises. Life expectancy rises with higher educational attainment (i.e. more educated people live longer than less educated people). In general, this trend ...
Relative income inequality has been proposed as a partial explanation for international differences in life expectancy.28 This relation has generated much debate during the past decade.29 Our results do not support the hypothesis that relative inequality within the administrative regions of England and Wales could explain the differences in life expectancy observed between them. However, the use of ward level measures of deprivation may have diluted the effect of intra-regional income inequality on life expectancy. It has been suggested elsewhere that this effect may be observed more readily on an national scale or in countries where income inequality is much greater than in England and Wales (for example, the USA). Also, the nationalised nature of the welfare state and other public services in the UK may mean that more subtle measures of social status are required to identify such patterns.30,31. The differentials in life expectancy shown in this study between the most affluent and the most ...
Survival in type 1 diabetes has improved, but the impact on life expectancy in the U.S. type 1 diabetes population is not well established. Our objective was to estimate the life expectancy of the Pittsburgh Epidemiology of Diabetes Complications (EDC) study cohort and quantify improvements by comparing two subcohorts based on year of diabetes diagnosis (1950-1964 [n = 390] vs. 1965-1980 [n = 543]). The EDC study is a prospective cohort study of 933 participants with childhood-onset (aged ,17 years) type 1 diabetes diagnosed at Childrens Hospital of Pittsburgh from 1950 to 1980. Mortality ascertainment was censored 31 December 2009. Abridged cohort life tables were constructed to calculate life expectancy. Death occurred in 237 (60.8%) of the 1950-1964 subcohort compared with 88 (16.2%) of the 1965-1980 subcohort. The life expectancy at birth for those diagnosed 1965-1980 was ∼15 years greater than participants diagnosed 1950-1964 (68.8 [95% CI 64.7-72.8] vs. 53.4 [50.8-56.0] years, ...
The average life expectancy is about 75 years. But theres another kind of life expectancy, one that describes how we each feel our life ought to go, ought to be lived. When conflict, obstacles, and tragedies shake our lives, these life expectancies are challenged, stretched to their limits - and sometimes they break. For Michael Kearns this friction between expectation and the unexpected is a wellspring for vivid, authentic drama about everyday and extraordinary people. In Life Expectancies Kearns grapples with the difficult feelings that result when our expectations dont match our reality, and the resulting monologues challenge the audience and the performer to humanize topics and people who are often willfully ignored. Whether entering the shadow world of the homeless through a street persons thoughts, going far afield to see wars devastation through eyes that have experienced Iraq up close, or clinging to home in order to unknot a father-child relationship, the humor, humanity, and ...
The results of this study indicate that limiting sitting to ,3 h/day and limiting television viewing to ,2 h/day may increase life expectancy at birth in the USA by approximately 2.0 and 1.4 years, respectively, assuming a causal relationship. The PAF provides a theoretical estimate of the effects of a risk factor on an outcome at the population level, in this case, all-cause mortality. The results indicate that sedentary behaviours are accounting for between 1.4 and 2.0 years of life expectancy at birth. This should not be interpreted to mean that people who are more sedentary can expect to live 1.4 or 2.0 years less than someone who does not engage in these behaviours as much. Life expectancy is a population statistic and it does not apply to individuals. A recent meta-analysis of television viewing and all-cause mortality estimated that the RR of all-cause mortality was 1.13 (95% CI 1.07 to 1.18)/2 h of daily television viewing, which corresponded with 104 deaths per 100 000 people in the ...

Any very large change in mortality trends must be taken extremely seriously. Life expectancy is the most important social statistic that any country produces about itself and it is often an early sign of wider societal problems, as in the former USSR in the 1980s17 or in the USA more recently. American life expectancy at birth stalled between 2010 and 2014 and, in 2015, actually declined, with rising rates from causes that have been described as deaths of despair18 concentrated among the poor in states that had experienced the greatest economic and social decline.19 This has political consequences; those counties in which life expectancy stagnated or declined experienced the largest increases in Republican votes in the 2016 Presidential election.20 Some other European countries have seen slowing of improvements in life expectancy but, crucially, not all, and not to the extent seen in England and Wales. Whether comparison of the economic choices made by those countries whose life expectancy has ...

While there is evidence for a negative correlation between income inequality and a populations average life expectancy, it is not clear whether this is due to an aggregation effect based on a non-linear relationship between income and life expectancy or to income inequality being a health hazard in itself. The proposed correction method is general and independent of measures of income inequality, functional form assumptions of the health production function, and assumptions on the income distribution. We apply it to data from the Human Development Report and find that the relationship between income inequality and life expectancy can be explained entirely by the aggregation effect. Hence, there is no evidence that income inequality itself is a health hazard. Copyright Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg

Older women in the United States have long enjoyed an advantage over men in the number of years lived without disabilities. Results in this study of mortality and disability trends for men and women ages 65 and older indicate that the advantage disappeared from 1982 to 2011. Data are from the 1982 and 2004 National Long Term Care Survey and the 2011 National Health and Aging Trends Study. For older men, longevity increased, disability was postponed, and the percentage of remaining life spent active increased. However, for older women, small longevity increases were accompanied by smaller postponements in disability and stagnation of active life as a percentage of life expectancy. As a consequence, older women no longer live more active years than men, despite living longer lives. Public health measures directed at older women to postpone disability may be needed to offset long-term care pressures related to population aging ...
Read statistics showing that the life expectancy gap between African-Americans and Caucasians is thinning, and a viewpoint on reducing the gap further.
Cigarette smoking, adiposity, unhealthy diet, heavy alcohol drinking and physical inactivity together are associated with about half of premature deaths in Western populations. The aim of this study was to estimate their individual and combined impacts on residual life expectancy (RLE). Lifestyle and mortality data from the EPIC-Heidelberg cohort, comprising 22,469 German adults ≥40 years and free of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer at recruitment (1994-1998), were analyzed with multivariable Gompertz proportional hazards models to predict lifetime survival probabilities given specific baseline status of lifestyle risk factors. The life table method was then used to estimate the RLEs. For 40-year-old adults, the most significant loss of RLE was associated with smoking (9.4 [95% confidence interval: 8.3, 10.6] years for male and 7.3 [6.0, 8.9] years for female heavy smokers [|10 cigarettes/day]; 5.3 [3.6, 7.1] years for men and 5.0 [3.2, 6.6] years for women smoking ≤10 cigarettes/day).
This paper focus on the analysis of future longevity increases in India and its major states. Forecasts are made by age, sex, urban/rural residence and sixteen major states of India. Data from Sample Registration System by Registrar General of India (1971-2007) is used. Life expectancy at age sixty is analyzed to study the patterns of mortality improvements. Sigma, beta and conditional convergence models are used to study the pattern of life expectancy changes in states. Extrapolation of LE60 is made by fitting different regression models. Female life expectancy is going to increase with higher pace in coming future than male, which raise a policy concern for more elderly women available for social security in future. Female life expectancy at age 60 is going to be 21.9 years in 2032, while for males the LE60 in 2032 may reach to 19.1 years.. ...
For heart attack survivors, partial ileal bypass surgery or bypass of the distal small intestine plus a tailored diet instruction plan can lower LDL cholesterol levels and increase life expectancy, according to a study published in the May 24 edition of the Annals of Surgery.
There was a resurgence of malaria in São Tomé and Príncipe in 2010, but the exact cause is unknown.[1] Female life expectancy at birth was 65.1 years in between 2005 and 2010, and male life expectancy at 62.8 for the same time period.[2] Healthy life expectancy at birth was at 64.7 years in 2011.[3] According to WHO, São Tomé and Príncipe is also home to the largest documented amount of iron-deficiency anemia amongst any countrys population.[4] ...

Twenty-five percent of respondents to a survey by Wells Fargo & Co. (NYSE:WFC) said they expect to work until they are 80 in order to be able to retire comfortably. The current life expectancy in the United States is 78.1 years on average, meaning those respondents expect to work full-time two years longer than most people live.

Colombias leading health indicators indicated consistent improvement over the long term. During the 1950s, life expectancy at birth was under fifty years for the average citizen. In 1988 this indicator had reached approximately sixty-eight years for females and sixty-four years for males. The estimated life expectancy range for the rural population was 10 percent to 30 percent below the national average, varying regionally. In the eastern plains, the Amazon Basin, the southern rural Caribbean coastal region, and especially in the southern and northern Pacific coast, the rate of improvement in life expectancy was substantially lower than the national average; in some of the poorest areas, no perceptible change had occurred between the 1950s and the 1980s. Higher life expectancies were closely correlated with the spatial distribution of the population. The higher the level of urbanization, the greater the average life expectancy. The five major cities--with nearly 30 percent of the ...

For men, the largest difference is also at 60 years, when life expectancy with mild functional disability is 180% greater than for severe disability, while the smallest difference is at 80 years, when life expectancy with moderate functional disability is 46% greater than for severe.. Discussion. This study attempted to estimate and compare life expectancies for different degrees of functional disability. Generally, studies that estimate healthy life expectancy in relation to disability lack uniformity. They use different forms of estimation, with distinct indicators and scales, which hinders subsequent comparisons. These differences can be partially attributed to the form in which the information is available and to each researchers objective. The present study attempted to work with three levels of functional disability, considering their progressive nature, using data from a survey which is not directed specifically to assessing functional disability in the elderly population, but which ...

1248 of 17 661 eligible patients died during 91 203 person years follow-up. Life expectancy (standard error) at exact age 20 increased from 30.0 (1.2) to 45.8 (1.7) years from 1996-9 to 2006-8. Life expectancy was 39.5 (0.45) for male patients and 50.2 (0.45) years for female patients compared with 57.8 and 61.6 years for men and women in the general population (1996-2006). Starting antiretroviral therapy later than guidelines suggest resulted in up to 15 years loss of life: at age 20, life expectancy was 37.9 (1.3), 41.0 (2.2), and 53.4 (1.2) years in those starting antiretroviral therapy with CD4 count ,100, 100-199, and 200-350 cells/mm3, respectively ...
To our knowledge, this is the first study to explore when and how older adults prefer to discuss life expectancy in primary care. Similar to previous studies4⇓-6, most of our participants wanted to discuss life expectancy; however, only a minority were interested in such discussions when life expectancy is still more than a year. We found that even those who did not want to discuss life expectancy were open to being offered an opportunity for discussion provided that the patients could say no; similar results have been found in cancer patients regarding end-of-life prognosis communication.3. Previous studies found that more older adults wanted to discuss life expectancy when life expectancy was shorter.4,6 In contrast, we found that most of the participants who wanted to discuss life expectancy had ,10 years predicted life expectancy whereas those participants with limited life expectancy tended to not want such discussions. The discrepancy may be because previous studies used hypothetical or ...
Age-adjusted death rates in the United States dropped significantly between 2005 and 2006 and life expectancy hit another record high, according to preliminary death statistics released today by CDC s National Center for Health Statistics.. The 2006 age-adjusted death rate fell to 776.4 deaths per 100,000 population from 799 deaths per 100,000 in 2005, the CDC report said. In addition, death rates for eight of the 10 leading causes of death in the United States all dropped significantly in 2006, it said. These included a very sharp drop in mortality from influenza and pneumonia.. The preliminary infant mortality rate for 2006 was 6.7 infant deaths per 1,000 live births, a 2.3 percent decline from the 2005 rate of 6.9. ...

Read in Spanish. Lifestyle risks are now the overall dominant factor that determines the likelihood of a long and healthy life. Florian Boecker, Head of Life Solutions at PartnerRe, reviews lifestyle risk trends and their dynamic and varied impact on Life and Health re/insurance. We all hope (and in many cases, expect) to live a long, healthy life. Over the last century, disease and accident prevention measures and medical progress have massively improved our chances of doing just that. Indeed, the world average life expectancy at birth more than doubled over this period, increasing from 31 years at the beginning of the 20th century to 68 years in 20131 (although there is still a large contrast between developed countries, where a newborn can expect to live well beyond its 80th birthday, and the poorest countries where it will struggle to reach its 50th). Most of this progress in life expectancy is due to the successful fight against infectious diseases, better treatment of cardiovascular ...
Conclusions of the study: 1. In general, the health of the hunter-gatherers was better than the agriculturalists. Hunters had superior nutrition, especially in childhood. Child mortality was especially high in farming villages around the time of weaning, ages 2-4, probably due to higher rates of disease, both nutritional and infectious.. 2. Birth and early infancy were more dangerous stages in hunting groups than in farming groups. About 15 percent of infants died before age 12 months in hunting groups; around 8 percent of infants of farmers died in the first year. However, in the 1-3 year age group, 20 percent of the farmers children died, and only about 12 percent of the hunters.. 3. Life expectancy in both groups was higher in females than in males, and average life expectancy for a newborn female child of a hunting group was considerably higher (average of 23 years) than for a male child of a farming group (average of 16 years). These life expectancies are calculated on the groupings of ...
In another example of vital statistics being grossly distorted by a combination of poor record keeping and possibly people with a selfish agenda, it is being reported in the Guardian and elsewhere that possibly hundreds of thousands of people over age 100 in Japan are actually dead, but unreported. Investigations are now underway to determine how much of this problem is due to record keeping problems and how much to family members failing to report the deaths of their elderly relatives in order to continue to collect their pension benefits by fraudulent means.. There are more than 77,000 Japanese citizens reported to be over age 120, and even 884 persons AGED OVER 150 YEARS OF AGE, who are still alive according to government rolls.. While we in the US wouldnt bat an eye if we heard this story coming out of the Chicago area of Cook County, Illinois, given the number of dead people still actively voting in elections there, there are at least 230,000 people in Japan over age 100 who simply cannot ...
Research on race and health in the United States shows many health disparities between the different racial/ethnic groups. The possible causes, such as genetics, socioeconomic factors, and racism, continue to be debated. In biomedical research conducted in the U.S., the 2000 US census definition of race is often applied. This grouping recognizes five races: black or African American, White (European American), Asian, native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander, and American Indian or Alaska native. However, this definition is inconsistently applied across the range of studies that address race as a medical factor, making assessment of the utility of racial categorization in medicine more difficult. The twentieth century witnessed a great expansion of the upper bounds of the human life span. At the beginning of the century, average life expectancy in the United States was 47 years. By centurys end, the average life expectancy had risen to over 70 years, and it was not unusual for Americans to ...

Do countries with higher IT spending have higher life expectancy? Recent policy debate on healthcare in the United States has focused on the role of IT in reducing costs and improving healthcare access and quality. An implicit assumption in this debate has been that greater infusion of IT into healthcare will lead to better health outcomes. We investigate the validity of this assumption by examining the extent to which higher IT expenditures at the country level are associated with higher life expectancy, a key measure of healthcare outcomes. Drawing on the information systems and supply chain management literature, we theorize three mechanisms to explain why IT may be associated with healthcare outcomes at the country level: information integration, workflow coordination, and collaborative planning. We then conduct an empirical analysis relating IT investments with life expectancy and find that higher IT investments at the country level are positively associated with higher life expectancy. We discuss

Background Prolonged television (TV) viewing time is unfavourably associated with mortality outcomes, particularly for cardiovascular disease, but the impact on life expectancy has not been quantifi ed. The authors estimate the extent to which TV viewing time reduces life expectancy in Australia, 2008. Methods The authors constructed a life table model that incorporates a previously reported mortality risk associated with TV time. Data were from the Australian Bureau of Statistics and the Australian Diabetes, Obesity and Lifestyle Study, a national population-based observational survey that started in 1999-2000. The authors modelled impacts of changes in population average TV viewing time on life expectancy at birth. Results The amount of TV viewed in Australia in 2008 reduced life expectancy at birth by 1.8 years (95% uncertainty interval (UI): 8.4 days to 3.7 years) for men and 1.5 years (95% UI: 6.8 days to 3.1 years) for women. Compared with persons who watch no TV, those who spend a ...

These facts are from the CIA-and they are undisputed:. • Infant mortality rate in the United States: 6.06 per 1,000 live births. • Infant mortality rate in France: 3.29 per 1,000 live births. • Average life expectancy in the United States: 78.37 years (75.92 for men, 80.93 for women).. • Average life expectancy in France: 81.19 years (78.20 for men, 84.54 for women).. • Total expenditure on health care in the United States: 16.2% of GDP (2009).. • Total expenditure on health care in France: 3.5% of GDP (2009).. • Expenditure on health care in the United States per capita: $7,517 per year (2009).. • Expenditure on health care in France per capita: $1,148 per year (2009).. So . . . to make it clear: France has a Socialist-Commie health care system, while the United States has the best health care system in the world-. -and yet the French live longer, have an infant mortality rate roughly half the United States, and yet still manage to spend less than Americans on health care.

With regards to Type 1 diabetes, the prognosis of young people with the disease is scarcely better than it was before the discovery of insulin - the average life expectancy for a young person diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes can be as little as six months (average life expectancy in the UK is 68 years). Premature death due to coma constitutes a day-to-day threat for the majority who depend upon insulin to survive. Essential insulin and other medications remain widely out of reach, due either to their excessive cost or the unreliable and insecure supply chains that make these life-saving supplies unobtainable..

This research revealed that the residual or recurrent NPC patients who received PDT have higher life expectancy (60, 7%) compared to those who did not received PDT (22, 9%). It is important to note that the group of residual/recurrent NPC patients who received PDT had gone through a selection to fulfill the inclusion criteria for PDT, in which the tumor size in this group is less than one centimeter (,1cm) and if there is a lymph node metastasis. Therefore the clinical characteristics between PDT group and no PDT group might be slightly different. This difference could possibly affect the result of 5 years life expectancy analysis on both groups. Even so, this research is managed to show that PDT could increase 5 years life expectancy in residual or recurrent NPC patients.. The analysis result of prognostic factors affecting PDF success outcome showed that males have higher life expectancy (73, 5%) compared to the females (42, 2%). Residual or recurrent NPC patients who received PDT who are 40 ...
Objective To model the social distribution of quality-adjusted life expectancy (QALE) in England by combining survey data on health-related quality of life with administrative data on mortality. Methods Health Survey for England data sets for 2010, 2011, and 2012 were pooled (n = 35,062) and used to model health-related quality of life as a function of sex, age, and socioeconomic status (SES). Office for National Statistics mortality rates were used to construct life tables for age-sex-SES groups. These quality-of-life and length-of-life estimates were then combined to predict QALE as a function of these characteristics. Missing data were imputed, and Monte-Carlo simulation was used to estimate standard errors. Sensitivity analysis was conducted to explore alternative regression models and measures of SES. Results Socioeconomic inequality in QALE at birth was estimated at 11.87 quality-adjusted life-years (QALYs), with a sex difference of 1 QALY. When the socioeconomic-sex subgroups are ranked ...
The average annual growth rate of the Albanian population for the period 1960-90 was 2.4 percent, or approximately three to four times higher than that of other European countries. Population growth was actively encouraged by the government, which deemed it essential for the further strengthening and prosperity of socialist society. Albania had a population of 3,335,000 in July 1991, compared with 2,761,000 in mid-1981 and 1,626,000 in 1960. The most sparsely populated Balkan country until 1965, Albania attained a population density of 111 inhabitants per square kilometer in 1989--the highest in the Balkans. The 1991 growth rate was 1.8 percent. In 1991 Albania had a birth rate of 24 per 1,000, and its death rate had declined from 14 per 1,000 in 1950 to 5 per 1,000. A concomitant of the reduced death rate was an increase in life expectancy. Official Albanian sources indicated that average life expectancy at birth increased from fifty-three years in 1950 to seventy-two years for males and ...
Background: The fourth Millennium Development Goal calls for a two-thirds reduction in under-5 mortality between 1990 and 2015. Under-5 mortality rate is declining, but many countries are still far from achieving the goal. Effective child health interventions that could reduce child mortality exist, but national decision-makers lack contextual information for priority setting in their respective resource-constrained settings. We estimate the potential health impact of increasing coverage of 14 selected health interventions on child mortality in Ethiopia (2011-2015). We also explore the impact on life expectancy and inequality in the age of death (Ginihealth).. Methods and Findings: We used the Lives Saved Tool to estimate potential impact of scaling-up 14 health interventions in Ethiopia (2011-2015). Interventions are scaled-up to 1) government target levels, 2) 90% coverage and 3) 90% coverage of the five interventions with the highest impact. Under-5 mortality rate, neonatal mortality rate and ...
The study of the measles incidence rates and the vaccination rates in the USA showed that there was a clear pattern of increasing immunisation rates followed by declining incidence rates. The opposite pattern was also true (decreasing immunisation rates increased the number of cases). Detailed figures were available in the article.. The measles incidence (cases/100,000 population) relating to the pre-school vaccination rates varied from 13.2 (40 to 49% pre-school vaccination rate) to 0.001 (70 to 79% pre-school vaccination rate).. The proportion of measles cases with meningitis was 0.1%.. The proportion of patients with meningitis who had permanent disabilities was 25%.. The proportion of patients with meningitis with slight permanent disabilities was 20%.. The life expectancy at age 2 was 74.1 years.. The life expectancy for children with slight disabilities was 74.1 years.. The life expectancy for children with moderate disabilities was 64 years.. The life expectancy for children with severe ...
At the Life Insurance Settlement Associations 2014 Annual Fall Life Settlement and Compliance Conference, which was held last month in Scottsdale, Ariz., the keynote speaker for the general session was Jay Olshansky, Ph.D., professor at University of Illinois at Chicagos School of Public Health. Dr. Olshansky reviewed some of his research into estimating the duration of life, which indicates that although advancements in science and medicine are extending the average life expectancy for Americans, it is unlikely to ever create conditions where Americans are routinely able to live 100 years or more.. In spite of what you may read on magazine covers and newspaper headlines, the truth is that the timing of death in human beings has never really changed, said Dr. Olshansky. Its certainly true that a larger number of people are living longer today than in the past - and that trend will continue - but life span itself is unlikely to change and were just not going to see a whole generation of ...

Leisure-time physical activity is associated with longer life expectancy, even at relatively low levels of activity and regardless of body weight, according to researchers at the National Cancer Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). In order to determine the number of years of life gained from leisure-time physical activity in adulthood, researchers examined data on more than 650,000 adults, mostly aged 40 and older, who took part in 1 of 6 population-based studies that were designed to evaluate various aspects of cancer risk. After accounting for other factors that could affect life expectancy, the researchers found that life expectancy was 3.4 years longer for people who reported they got the recommend level of physical activity (2.5 hours at moderate intensity/1.25 hours at vigorous intensity each week). People who reported leisure-time physical activity at twice the recommended level gained 4.2 years of life.. The researchers even saw benefit at low levels of activity. ...
According to the American Cancer Society, on average, most Mesothelioma patients have a short life expectancy of about four to 18 months after the diagnosis has occurred. Approximately 10% of the diagnosed mesothelioma patients survive beyond five years following the initial diagnosis. There are several factors that contribute to this phenomenon, including the fact that mesothelioma has a prolonged latency period and its most prominent symptoms show up only in the final stages of the disease.. However, all is not lost for mesothelioma patients. There are many pre-existing conditions (patients age, type of mesothelioma and overall medical condition), treatment methods and alternate therapies which can cumulatively enhance the life expectancy of an individual. Advanced, experimental treatment strategies are also being developed to increase the life expectancy of people diagnosed with mesothelioma. Here are few conditions that can significantly impact an individuals survival rate.. ...
A look at Americans health reveals the astonishing inequalities in our society. American girls are born with a life expectancy that ranks 19th in the world (in another survey they fall to 28th). Male babies rank 31st -- in a dead tie with Brunei. Among the 13 wealthiest countries, the United States ranks last or nearly so in almost every way we measure health: infant mortality, low birth weight, life expectancy at birth, life expectancy for infants. The average American boy lives three and a half fewer years than the average Japanese baby, despite higher rates of cigarette smoking in Japan. The American adolescent death rate is twice as high as, say, Englands. These dismal American averages mask vast differences across our population. A male born in some sections of Washington, D.C., for example, has a life expectancy 40 years lower than a woman born in many wealthy neighborhoods. In short, great differences in wealth match up to -- indeed, they create -- terrible differences in health. Why do ...
The results of our research allow us to definitively answer the question of whether jogging is good for your health, said Schnohr, who is chief cardiologist of the Copenhagen City Heart Study. We can say with certainty that regular jogging increases longevity. The good news is that you dont actually need to do that much to reap the benefits.. The debate over jogging first kicked off in the 1970s when middle aged men took an interest in the past-time. After a few men died while out on a run, various newspapers suggested that jogging might be too strenuous for ordinary middle aged people, recalled Schnohr.. For the jogging study, the mortality of 1,116 male joggers and 762 female joggers was compared to the non joggers. All participants were asked to answer questions about the amount of time they spent jogging each week, and to rate their own perceptions of pace (defined as slow, average, and fast).. The first data was collected between 1976 to 1978, the second from 1981 to 1983, the third ...
A new study shows life expectancy is on the decline for most working-age Americans. Those between the ages of 25 and 64 are now less likely to reach the age of retirement than at any point in recent history. For many of us, this news may come as a bit of a shock. Were used to going to work every day, collecting a paycheck, and saving up for retirement, but reaching the age of retirement may not be as attainable as we once thought.. As a healthcare provider, discover whats causing this trend and how you can help your patients live a long, healthy life.. Understanding the Results of the Study. We may like to assume that recent medical advances are helping us live longer, healthier lives, but as this new study confirms, thats not always the case.

Rethinking Health Care , Events , Speakers , Seminars , Resources Dr. Stephanie Woolhandler, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and founder of Physicians for a National Health Program, will present her lecture Health Reform: The Need for Single Payer National Health Insurance as part of the Weissman Centers Fall 2009 series, Rethinking Healthcare on Wednesday, November 18, at 7:30 pm in Gamble Auditorium, Art Building, at Mount Holyoke College. The United States spends $2 trillion a year on health care, the highest per capita spending for health care in the world. Despite spending nearly twice as much on health care as residents of other nations, Americans have relatively poor health and access to health care. Americans are dying at an earlier age than the average life expectancy for developed countries. Life expectancy in Canada and much of Western Europe is about two years longer than in the U.S. 47 million Americans have no health insurance, and private coverage is often so ...
middle 30 percent of the population has 36 percent, while the remaining 60 percent gets 26 percent of the countrys income. One need look no further than the indexes of health, education, and housing to understand that there are great disparities between the wealthy and poor in Mexico. With respect to health, the Mexican population has on average done well. In 1940, average life expectancy and infant mortality were respectively 42 and 125 per 1,000 live births. By the year 2000, those statistics had changed to 75.3 and 25 per 1,000 live births. But disparities persist; life expectancy is lower by 10 to 15 years and infant mortality can be twice as high in the poorer southern states like Chiapas. Health care is substantially free for all Mexican citizens. The Mexican Institute of Social Security runs hospitals and clinics that are available to workers in the formal sector. Mexicans who are not in the formal labor force are able to receive medical care from a number of different governmental ...
by ideapod , Nov 5, 2017 , Health & Psychology, Humans. It may sound strange that a person inflicted with a deadly virus such as HIV can actually help them live longer. Believe it or not, researchers from the North American AIDS Cohort Collaboration on Research and Design study found that a person diagnosed with HIV at 20 years old or older and on antiretroviral therapy (ART) can expect to live longer than the average life expectancy. The study found that someone aged 20 or older on ART in the U.S or Canada is now expected to live into their early 70s - a life expectancy thats approaching that of the general population. However, the study also found that if a 20-year-old is a man, and starts HIV treatment early with a CD4 count at or above 350, they can expect to live an additional 69 years, or to approximately 89 years old, 10-12 years longer than the general population. Dr. Gary Blick, Chief Medical Officer of World Health Clinicians and co-founder of HIV Equal, says this is clear evidence of ...
Down syndrome is most commonly caused by trisomy 21, where an extra 21st chromosome is present at conception supplied by one of the gametes (sperm or egg and most often from the egg). Other forms such as Mosaic DS and translocation account for less than 10% of all cases but all three are linked to the presence of an extra 21st chromosome. It is the most common chromosomal condition in the United States with more than 400,000 people currently living with DS. According to the National Down Syndrome Society and the National Down Syndrome Congress there is absolutely no way to predict the degree to which DS will physically impact a person prior to birth. Although 100 years ago people with DS had an average life expectancy of less than 10 years, medical advances especially in corrective heart surgery and antibiotics have extended the average life span to 60 years old. Advocates for people with DS report that, because of developmental therapy, it is increasingly typical for people with DS to be ...

There are great variations in life expectancy between different parts of the world, mostly caused by differences in public health, medical care and diet. Much of the excess mortality (higher death rates) in poorer nations is due to war, starvation, and diseases (AIDS, Malaria, etc.). Over the past 200 years, countries with Black or African populations have generally not had the same improvements in mortality rates that have been enjoyed by populations of European origin. Even in countries with a majority of White people, such as USA, Britain, Ireland and France, Black people tend to have shorter life expectancies than their White counterparts (although often the statistics are not analysed by sexuality). For example, in the U.S. White Americans are expected to live until age 78, but black people only until age 71.[6]. Climate may also have an effect, and the way data is collected may also influence the figures. According to the CIA World Factbook, Macau Special Administrative Region of the ...
On March 29, 2008, Zimbabwe will hold presidential and parliamentary elections. Few people believe that they will be free and fair or that Robert Mugabe and his Zimbabwe African National Union -- Patriotic Front party will fail to return to office. That is a tragedy, because Mugabe and his cronies are chiefly responsible for an economic meltdown that has turned one of Africas most prosperous countries into a country with one of the lowest life expectancies in the world. Since 1994, the average life expectancy in Zimbabwe has fallen from 57 years to 34 years for women and from 54 years to 37 years for men. Some 3,500 Zimbabweans die every week from the combined effects of HIV/AIDS, poverty, and malnutrition. Half a million Zimbabweans may have died already. There is no freedom of speech or assembly in Zimbabwe, and the state has used violence to intimidate and murder its opponents. At the root of Zimbabwes problems is a corrupt political elite that has, with considerable international support,

Life expectancy is the expected period of time a person may expect to live. Life expectancy varies from where you live and how you take care for yourself. Having safe water and food extends the life expectancy and keeps you healthy. Modern medicine, medical technology and hospital care can help anybody ranging from an infant to a senior, so that they can live longer and healthier. The life expectancy for developing nations is usually 75 and is very low in infant mortality. Monaco also has the highest life expectancy with 89.68 but unfortunately in Chad the life expectancy is only ...

Abstract: The laboratory of Richard Miller and numerous heroic collaborators are in the process of testing a variety of life span predictors on more than 1000 mice. In their most recent publication, Harper et al. show that early-adulthood measures of T cell subsets, body weight, and thyroxine can be effectively combined to provide a highly significant predictor of life expectancy. Each measure appears to be an index of largely separate parameters that affect the course of aging. This article summarizes the results, discusses implications, mentions caveats, and suggests future studies.. Citation: B. A. Rikke, Early Life Predictors of Old-Age Life Expectancy. Sci. Aging Knowl.

Introduction. North of Morocco and South of Spain are closely located areas, yet with marked socio-economic and cultural differences. Morocco is undergoing a demographic and social transition. Likewise, life expectancy at birth increased 23 years (from 47 to 70 years) from 1962 to 1999.3 Much less steeply increase has taken place in Spain, where life expectancy increased 6 years (from 73 to 79 years) from 1970 to 1999.4 Nowadays, Moroccan women life expectancy is 74.6 years,5 whereas in Spanish women is 84.7 years.4. The Dietary habits have changed in both Moroccan and Spanish population during the last decades.8-9 Overweight and obesity have increased considerably in both countries and has become one of the main public health problems.9-10 Cardiovascular disease is the first cause of mortality in Spain as well as in Morocco 7, 11, and it is related to factors such as obesity and metabolic syndrome.12 The metabolic syndrome is a constellation of interrelated risk factors of metabolic origin ...

This study is the first direct comparison of economic outcomes of DES-PCI versus CABG among patients with diabetes mellitus and multivessel CAD. Our results reveal that although CABG was associated with an increase in initial costs of ≈$9000/patient, these up-front costs were partially offset by lower costs in subsequent years principally as a result of a lower rate of repeat revascularization procedures (and, to a lesser extent, less use of cardiac medications). Over the first 5 years of follow-up, CABG improved life expectancy by ≈0.05 years and quality-adjusted life expectancy by ≈0.03 QALYs while increasing total costs by ≈$3600. When the observed in-trial results were extrapolated over a lifetime horizon, CABG was associated with much larger gains in quality-adjusted life expectancy relative to PCI (0.66 QALYs in the base case), whereas projected lifetime costs remained ≈$5400/patient higher with CABG. Thus, under our base case assumptions regarding the duration and magnitude of ...

The question, asked at a crucial time in DUI trial in Snohomish County by Attorney Brian Sullivan, expounded on the point the State had sought to obscure. The machine they alleged was so certainly accurate had a much larger margin of error - aka: confidence interval - then they were prepared to answer about. Was it plus or minus 6%? 10%? 25% or more?. Critical in any allegation of DUI is the allegation of BAC. But how accurate is the States evidence? Can it be flawed - both up and down? All experts seem to agree it can be. The key to success then in an over .08 breath test case then is explaining this critical fact to the jury ...

Our client was stopped at a Gwinnett Police DUI checkpoint on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard. The Gwinnett DUI Task Force Officer conducted an investigation after he smelled alcohol coming from our client. Our client agreed to perform field sobriety evaluations and was arrested for DUI in Gwinnett County. The Gwinnett DUI Task Force are the only Gwinnett Police Officers who have in-car videos, however at a pre-planned DUI sobriety checkpoint, those in-car videos inexplicably were not used. Our client agreed to submit to the state administered breath test and the result was a .089. The legal limit in Georgia is .08. The intoxilizer machine displayed an unexplained error during our clients breath test. Mr. Sullivan and Chestney & Sullivan Law Firm are well known for challenging the constitutionality of DUI sobriety checkpoints as well as the admissibility of state administered breath tests. Mr. Sullivan was setting this case up for appellate review. On the day of a motions hearing, the Gwinnett ...
A recent study suggests that female dogs that keep their ovaries through their whole lives are more likely to live longer than those that don’t.The study, “Exploring mechanisms of sex differences in longevity: lifetime ovary exposure and exceptional longevity in dogs,” says that female dogs, like women, are more likely to achieve “exceptional longevity” than their male counterparts.The researchers collected information on Rottweilers that lived to be 13 or older, which is more than 30 percent above the average life expectancy for that breed. Female dogs in general lived longer, but the researchers found that removal of the ovaries in the first four years of life “erased the female survival advantage.”
