“MEN in Canberra and Melbourne will live longer than in other Australian cities…”
But women almost everywhere else are still beating us. According to the article healthier living and advancements in medical technology have increased life expectancy, but surely in the case of ACT men there is a degree of sheer tenacity, bloddy mindedness and a good serving of ticker involved too.
Apparently we now have the second highest life expectancies in the world, which seems strange considering the latest reports that we are also the most obese nation.
Also I don’t know about you but “researchers are predicting a “centenarian army” of 78,000 by 2055″ sounds creepy enough to be the subject of a new Night of the Living Dead style horror movie.
