Life Expectancy

My whole website is about the dichotomy of the US. How we are the fattest country yet we have the greatest athletes. Well now a new release in the life expectancy rankings in the world, the US which is the richest (up for debate with China now) and most advanced with the greatest medical facilities and the most food, is #37 in the world!

So not only are we being outpaced by other first world countries, but also by some third world countries. US women rank even worse than men in comparison to women of the world as far as life expectancy. (Adult males eat 187 more calories per day and adult females eat 335 more calories per day than they did 20 years ago. I wonder if this has anything to do with female life expectancy.) What a wake up call.
