For the First Time in Four Years, the U.S. Life Expectancy Rose a Little
(NEW YORK) — Life expectancy in the United States is up for the first time in four years. The increase is small — just a month — but marks at least a temporary halt to a downward trend. The rise is due to lower death rates for cancer and drug overdoses. “Let’s just hope it continues,” said Robert Anderson, who oversees the report released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The latest calculation is for 2018 and factors in current death trends and other issues. On average, an infant born that year is expected to live about 78 years and 8 months, the CDC said. For...

But “getting healthier” isn’t a fixed concept. If health advice is anything, it’s fickle.
