US Life Expectancy Reaches New High

Congrats, everyone! We did it! We’re not dying as quickly anymore!

LOL!

The US life expectancy just reached a new all-time high — a little over 78. Babies born in 2009 are expected live 78 years and 2 months.

Somewhere close to 2.4 million people died in the US in 2009, which is 36,000 less than the in 2008.

There’s no single reason why life-expectancy has increased, but experts say it’s some combination of better medical treatment, vaccination campaigns, and public health measures against smoking.

The other good piece of news from the report is a drop in infant mortality rates to 6.42 deaths per 1,000, a 3% drop from the year before.

Love hearing news like this!
