Worldwide, We're Living Longer But Sicker



BBC News - We live 'longer but sicker' as chronic diseases rise

People around the world are living longer but with higher levels of sickness, according to the largest ever study of the global burden of disease.

The Lancet analysis shows high blood pressure, smoking and drinking alcohol have become the highest risk factors for ill health. They replace child malnourishment, which topped the list in 1990.

A lot of this stuff would have killed people earlier in the past, thus removing them from the statistical pool.

A lot might be reporting and diagnosing of more ills than in the past too.
