  1. Hi David, interesting post. I’m wondering what the US life expectancy is. Thanks for following my blog.

    1. United States is ranked 31st at average age of 79.3. Life Expectancy for women is 81.6 and Males is: 76.9,

  2. How can Australia be that high when all I ever read is how it’s filled with poisonous and venomous animals, including fish that climb out of the ocean and chase you up trees? All I know is my body started falling apart in my 30s, so living to 80 might not be great anyway. I wonder if those countries take care of their elders, have medical coverage, etc? It would be awful to be old and immobile, lying in a bed all day.
