New study shows we are living longer,but usually in painful and debilitated conditions.

For me,no surprise here .I found all the comments at the bottom quite interesting as well.

Miss me?

Over three million deaths globally were attributable in 2010 to excess body weight, more than three times as many as malnutrition.
"We've gone from a world 20 years ago where people weren't getting enough to eat to a world now where too much food and unhealthy food - even in developing countries - is making us sick," said Majid Ezzati of Imperial College London, one of the lead researchers.

However, the major health problems now are diseases and conditions that don't kill, but make us ill. We now live longer with more health problems that cause pain, impair mobility, and prevent us seeing, hearing and thinking clearly.
"Very few people are walking around with perfect health, and as people age, they accumulate health conditions," said Christopher Murray, the IHME's director.

And you have a recipe for disaster. I see younger and younger people who are morbidly obese, in wheelchairs, using oxygen. More and more people are developing type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. Add that to the elderly who have conditions like Alzheimer's disease, the future doesn't bode well for us heathwise.

Part of the problem with all of this is,the internet ,processed foods ,artificial sweetners .
It's not all the publics fault ,as they are given poison ,disguised as nutrition .
Then top it off with the new sedentary life style ,where everyone is a couch potato ...

In bible times, there were people that lived upto 170 years old, I think, so I think those who performed the study aren't aware of our ancient past.

Logically, we can't live for longer if our health is getting poorer. That doesn't even make sense.

I expect healthy and happy life. If it is short, no problem.

Time for voluntary euthanasia to be made legal all around the world.

What, in all the world, could I do to earn my living and still live as myself, as I knew myself to be? Temporary masks, I knew, had their place; everyone was wearing them, they were the human rage; but not masks cemented in place until the wearer could not breathe and was eventually suffocated.

The Bible states many things, some fact, other's fiction. IMO living up to age 170, especially without the help of modern technology.. highly unlikely. That's just my opinion, though.

Undated letter by President J.F.K. said:

   "War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today."

  "The nation which forgets its defenders will be itself forgotten."

I'm sure they were quite aware of these myths.
