Life Expectancy Decreased Last Year by 1.5 Years in the U.S.!

Mark Virkler's picture

According to this article, “For all comparable countries that have reported provisional or estimated life expectancy for 2020 (Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, and U.S.), life expectancy at birth decreased in 2020 due to COVID-19.”

It is interesting that the article goes on to show that life expectancy in all the above comparable countries is longer than in the U.S. even though they spend half or less per person annually on health care. The other 12 nations averaged slightly over $5000 per person annually.

“Among twelve peer nations, the U.S. had the highest healthcare spending per capita with $10,949 in 2019.”

In addition, the decrease in life expectancy in comparable countries was not as great as it was in the U.S.

“The average life expectancy at birth among comparable countries was 82.1 years in 2020, down 0.5 years from 2019. The CDC’s provisional estimates show that life expectancy at birth in the U.S. decreased to 77.3 years in 2020, down 1.6 years from 78.9 years in 2019.”

Reflections on the above statistics

These numbers should make every person ask, why does the U.S. spend twice as much annually on health care per person, and yet have the shortest lifespan of these 12 nations? I have written a blog on my philosophy concerning health. In it, you will find a section on why I have chosen to “opt-out” of the traditional health care system. The numbers are staggering. It is well worth reading. Forty-eight nations in the world have longer life expectancies than the U.S. I have chosen to take responsibility for my own health. The video below explains when I made that decision and why.
