Why are American women living five
years LESS than their mothers?
Scientists baffled by shocking trend

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 10/8/2013 6:44:39 AM

While the U.S. has always been a beacon of medical advancement for the world, American women today are expected to live shorter lives than their mothers. Two recent studies found that life expectancy for women have decreased the last two decades. ´Health care is far from the whole story,´ David Kindig, co-author of one of the studies, told the Atlantic. ´More and more people are beginning to realize that the non-health-care factors are at least as important.´ [Snip] Kindig said he was so shocked by it´s outcome, that he and his research partner went back and did the numbers again

Comments:
There should be a follow-up study on causes of death listed on death certificates. I´m thinking grossly unhealthy food, lack of exercise, domestic violence, suicide, alcohol, crack and meth, not necessarily in that order.

How about - 1. Failure to have children at a natural age.2. Failure to nurse children when you have them 3. Artificial termination of initial pregnancies.4. Multiple sex partners.5. Male like lifestyles. Isn´t it obvious?

I think the OP misses some huge facters that their mothers and grandmothers didn´t share. Birth control pills are known to increase the risk of heart disease and some cancers while repeated exposure to venereal disease weakens the immune system. Then there is the tie between the HPV virus and cervical cancer.

The demographic group that saw the largest decline in this report is one that has also seen a huge shift in single motherhood during the period. Part of this is due to the falling economic prospects of the men in this demographic among whom these women are most likely to find their partners.

It is going to turn out that marriage is good for the health of both men and women. For years now the so called experts have held the health benefits of marriage mostly accrue to men.

We bathed our systems in hormones for years in order to enjoy the promised fruits of the sexual revolution. We threw out good men and claimed our place in the stress filled 8 to 5 world so we could pay other people to raise our children AND feel guilty about it because in our gut it just felt wrong. We enjoyed the culture´s accolades for being heroic single moms while we admitted to our doctors we were depressed and needed a little something something

Years of unnatural hormones, workplace stress, guilt, solitude by choice. Gee I wonder ...

The faux feminists and the hippies lied to us. Tell your daughters.

So many of the posters here are correct. The liberal media will never turn against the birth control pill since it supossedly "liberated women" but I believe that it is a big culprit. I´m amazed at how many women I know will eat only organic food, live at yoga, will not give their kids vaccines, (or drink a soft drink, heaven forbid!) and yet will readily and without any thought take the pill to artificially manipulate the most natural thing in the world.

Agree with all of the above but I thinking smoking might be leading cause. Women who smoke tend smoke more than men. They also have a harder time quitting. Combine that with smaller size and off-the-charts weight problem and you have a perfect storm for early death.

Also, did they factor in that many women are now taking care not only of their children, but also as caretakers for their aging parents?

As someone who has spent the last 8 years doing this, I can say that I am more unhealthy today than I was simply due to the fact that I´m exhausted so I eat quick unhealthy meals, I miss doctor appointments because I have way to much to take care, etc.

I do agree about the long term use of Birth Control pills though. Very bad on your system.

What´s happening is that many of the risk factors which caused men to pre-decease women in the past, especially due to heart disease, are now prevalent in the female population as well.

IMO the women´s liberation movement was a primary cause. Trying to have it all, with the accompanying stress, and assuming the burden of primary or sole breadwinner in many instances. Disdaining marriage and gender differences, while engaging in many of the detrimental behaviors formerly nearly exclusive to men.

I´ll take a fast draw, shot from the hip:

I contend the increased use of drugs, both illegal and prescription (especially prescription drugs), are a major cause of women´s shortened life span.

The side effects of most prescription drugs are horrid.

If you read the article, it appears to have little to do with women working or whether or not they have children. The conclusions drawn by the researchers were that uneducated women--high school dropouts--were the ones that seemed to be most at risk. Buried in the article is the suggestion that the bad economy has led to unemployment and poverty for these women, which has affected their life-expectancy.

What stops the Earth from looking like Pluto is energy from the Sun. The quantity and type of energy coming from the Sun varies over cycles that range up to 1,500 years long.

Of all the many absurdities of the great climate change non-crisis which has been pointlessly obsessing our planet this last three or four decades, surely the most egregious is this: global warming is good. No really, it is. As a few bold heretics--such as Australian geologist Ian Plimer in his book Heaven And Earth--have long been trying to tell anyone prepared to listen, the human species is designed for warmth not cold. Ice ages are something we should naturally fear; warming periods are something which for which we should yearn. All the historical evidence confirms this--that periods of warming (such

At least six Birmingham schools accused of harbouring a Trojan horse plot run by Muslim fundamentalists will be placed under special measures by Ofsted. The action is understandable. The unsubtle attempts to insert Islamist ideas--representing an extremist, politicised form of Islam--into the curriculum of those schools makes for frightening reading. Equally unsettling was the liberal establishment’s failure to correct it. According to a special report by the Education Funding Agency, radical Muslims have tried to take control of teaching by first taking control of school governorships. Excellent head teachers were either reduced to the status of figureheads or forced out

Here we are again, facing Russia across the barricades. How did that happen?

Russia would now join the free world as a capitalist economy, with something like democratic institutions.

The price of chocolate could soar over the next few years as surging demand puts further pressure on the global cocoa crisis--and experts predict the demand could become unsustainable by 2020. Experts are warning that a growing taste for chocolate in Asia--particularly in China--means cocoa farmers will need more help to provide a greater amount to export or manufacturers will be forced to use less cocoa in their products. It is predicted chocolate prices will soar to keep up with the rising demand--otherwise consumers will increasingly be offered products filled with substitutes, such as nuts and fruits, to ‘pack out’ chocolate bars.

In 1925, Rudyard Kipling wrote an uncharacteristically restrained and sombre short story called The Gardener. It tells of a woman’s search for her illegitimate son, who goes missing in action on the Western Front. After the Armistice, she learns that he has been killed, and is buried in a military cemetery. Arriving there, she finds a man planting flowers in the earth and asks him where she might find her “nephew”. The man looks at her “with infinite compassion,” and tells her “Come with me, and I will show you where your son lies”. As she leaves the graveyard, she

Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority.

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote.

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight
