Excerpt
Health, United States brings us encouraging news: Our overall health is better and we are continuing to live longer. More healthful lifestyles are paying off for millions of us. Since the turn of the century, we have added more than 27 years in life expectancy, which has increased from just 47.3 years in 1900 to 74.5 years in 1982. We have also seen a dramatic decline in infant mortality, which has dropped from about 100 deaths per 1,000 live births in 1900 to an all-time low of 11.2 in 1982, At the other end of the life cycle, people 65 years of age could expect to live 11.9 additional years at the turn of the century, compared with 16.2 additional years in 1982.
