“Life expectancy in the United States has slipped below that of people in 41 other countries, according to an Associated Press report. While Americans now live to 77.9 years, that life expectancy ranks 42nd, down from 11th two decades ago. The report said factors contributing to the slide include a lack of health insurance for 45 million Americans, the nation’s high obesity rate and the high percentage of babies that die before their first birthday, among others. Andorra has the longest life expectancy at 83.5 years, the report said, while Swaziland has the shortest, at 34.1 years. Other countries that surpass the U.S. include Japan as well as most of Europe, Jordan, Guam and the Cayman Islands.”
