The CDC or Center for Disease Control in U.S. has revealed a new report about the total life span of a man. According to the department, it is estimated that around 1.5 years has been added in the life of today's baby than that of 10 years ago.
According to the new report delivered by this department is that an average woman has a longer life expectancy than a man which is now tremendously getting reduced. 2002 status shows that this gap is of 5.4 years which was 7.8 years in 1979.
The main top causes of death are now cured with the latest inventions in the field of medicine due to which the death rate decreased causing the life span of man to increase.
The report states that the death rates are constantly decreasing because of the fewer deaths in the recent years. The death rate is falling for the last continuous eight years and it is almost half the rate which was 60 years before.
The diseases causing deaths like cancer has been reduced to 2 percent in 2007 while heart diseases dropped by 5 percent. These two were the major death causing diseases in U.S. however there is a tremendous decrease in HIV deaths which in almost 10 years have reduced to 10 percent.
The CDC report is surely promising for the coming years to come but this report is compared with the other countries of the world, it would be surprising to find out that U.S. is far lagging behind that 30 countries.
World Health Organization in 2007 has given the report of the country securing the first position in the life expectancy is Japan with an average of 83 years of a new born baby.
Having a healthy good life is a must for all. Since America is a top most country which spends numerous money on health and still they don't even land in top 20's. What they need to focus is to make good eating habits with a quality diet to improve the life span of U.S. people.
