Vegan (alt.food.vegan) This newsgroup exists to share ideas and issues of concern among vegans. We are always happy to share our recipes- perhaps especially with omnivores who are simply curious- or even better, accomodating a vegan guest for a meal!

Baloney. Life expectancy has gone up.

Life expectancy is a tricky thing. There used to be a high death rate
of young children. What is the life expectancy of people 10 years and
older?

Also longevity is not the same as health. To live long with a health
problem that does not kill is not the same as being healthy. Do not
confuse between longevity and health.


US today uses expectancy based on live births. This makes it somewhat
lower than other nations that will not count premature births or kids
that last less than a certain time period.

Tell those with health problems being managed that they are better off
dead. I know of very few that would agree with you.

I personally had a couple of incidents where surgical procedures that
saved me were not around in the 50's.

I still say, op is full of it.


Still no citations, Frank?
