It's grim, all right. And the life expectancy is going down faster for women than for men. We still outlive men on average but not by as much as we once did.

"And the life expectancy is going down faster for women than for men."

Don't know about the US, but here in Europe the most important reason for that is that women today drink considerably more alcohol and smoke a lot more than those two generations ago did, when these habits were considered to be "male".

It really isn't that "grim". Americans need to quit their horrible eating habits and get up off the couch. Drink alcohol in moderation and no more cigarettes! There is an entitlement attitude and the doctor cannot fix most chronic diseases. Doctors can only manage chronic diseases while the patient slowly dies because they are non-compliant. Quit blaming the health care system for Americans cultural attitudes about taking care of their health.
