Question ID: 488672
Three days ago, I surfed on www.worldhealth. net, then,to be transfered possibly to another website to find an (news?) article (may be):21st century increasing life expectency is ending. Debated by Dr. S. Jay Olshansky to say that two storms: obesity and infectious disease would affect the results of human expentency to decline in 21st century. But Dr. James W Vaupel of the Max Planck institute from Germany by a fax has predicated - "It is a small chance, less than one is 100, that Dr. Olshansky ........ prove correct." (Besides, some demographers have attended the debate.) Would you like to let me know where is the website to be found the article and its contents ? Or, e-mail the article and contents for me ? Thanks !

Hello hyangarden and thank you for your question. The article you are looking for is called "Life is too short, and it might be getting shorter" and was published on November 4, 2004. See below for details. "Life is too short, and it might be getting shorter Expert says life spans have peaked, could soon decline November 4, 2004 BY ROBERT S. BOYD FREE PRESS WASHINGTON STAFF" Some excerpts: "Olshansky blamed the rising tide of obesity and the reemergence of deadly infectious diseases for threatening to dash Americans' confidence that each generation will live longer than the one before." "Said Vaupel, "There is a small chance -- less than one in 100 -- that Olshansky's prediction of declining life expectancy might possibly prove correct." For copyright reasons I am unable to post the full article here, however if you click on the link below you will be able to read the full article. http://www.freep.com/news/health/life4w_20041104.htm Thank you for your question and if you need any clarification of my answer, do not hesitate to ask before rating my answer.
