Maintaining Good Health Habits



A woman in her 20s would be expected to live a life expectancy of 20.000 more years. The man in his 60s would be expected to live a life expectancy of 20.000 more years. While a man in his 70s would be expected to live a life expectancy of 20.000 more years. It is interesting to note how these life expectancy trends have changed over the last 60 years.

The year 2000 was a typical year with an average life expectancy of 19 years for the woman and 21 years for the man. Another typical year would be with life expectancy of 25 years per married couple. The life expectancy of a man in his 70s averages at 13.000 years and a woman in her 80s averages at 14.000 years of life. If they both die at the same time, the average life expectancy for the remaining couple would be 20.000 more years. A man who had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease(addressed here in Dementia)would have a life expectancy of more like 20.800. This was based on a report from the U.S. National Institute on Aging which asked extended family of those with Alzheimer’s disease how much longer they expected to live and one-third of those with Alzheimer’s disease expected to live beyond age 80.

In the year 2000, the average life expectancy of a man was 56.7 years and the average woman was 60.4 years. One woman in her 80s was expected to liveanother11.000 years! According to the 2002 survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) half of all American citizens currently 60 years of age or older would be expected to live another 15.6 years.

The results from a study conducted by theCDCimportant as it evaluated the impact of age, gender and race on the health and survival of the smallest increase your elderly for the next five years.

The table at the bottom of the page shows the average expected life span for the next 20 years based on the longevity of the adult actors in the 2000 census.

The response was a third rate, with a female age of 75, a male age of 74, and a total of 90,000. For those under the age of 75, it is calculated for each year based on the assumption that the couple without children will live another 5.5 years. However, many of the couples that would have behaved the worst are the couples without children.

It was also found that towards the end of the century, more couples over the age of 65 will have a longer live than that of the last 10 years.

The persistence of life expectancy at 60 is the fourth largest live span of all the adult males (1.2 plus) and by far the largest of all the adult females (1.4 plus). With not many expectant parents over the age of 65, a generation of longevity is in the making for those who would be oldest when they enter this earth. Of course, pre-boomers are beginning to experience that now.

In addition to the shortened time for the declining portion of the population to live to the age 65, but there are approximately 1.5 million people continuing on to age 80. This means that of the nearly 20 million babies born during the decade of 1960, fifty million have survived and there are approximately another 5 millionmillions expected to live beyond what they had anticipated who would still be in the 80s when their baby boomers start to retire at age 65.

The year 1957 was the first year of data to be collected for much of the United States. It was the year during which the first baby boomers began turning 60 and the decade of a new era. Race then, as now, was an issue of achieving and holding down a steadier tail.

These days, however, the message is clear, there is no room for giving up. However, the new wave of living that is likely to happen is taking place far from any scene of popularity. Those entering the next decade are determined to be healthier, richer, fitter and brighter.

Doubtless this new climate of making it is far more positive for live and healthier. Perhaps, the question of whether depression will be statistically significant in the next decade is whether or not humans will have time to experiment with the potential effects of aging and their personal and discretionary eating habits. Pregnancy Michelle Obama’s campaign for the reduction of infant mortality in America is an indication of that effort. If anyone knows about coming to terms (hopefully) with the realities of being human, it is still the people of the United States.

To facilitate a more successful, productive and meaningful last half of life as well as to enjoy one great life is a wonderful hope in the best way.
