Read article – Quotes Ellen Meara, professor of The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, in an article about a study published Tuesday that looked at the past six decades of mortality data, and found that death rates from suicide, drug overdoses, liver disease, and dozens of other causes have been rising over the past decade for young and middle-aged adults, driving down overall life expectancy in the United States for three consecutive years. “There’s something more fundamental about how people are feeling at some level—whether it’s economic, whether it’s stress, whether it’s deterioration of family,” said Meara. “People are feeling worse about themselves and their futures, and that’s leading them to do things that are self-destructive and not promoting health.”
Read article – Quotes Ellen Meara, professor of The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, about a new analysis of more than a half-century of federal mortality data published in JAMA that found that the increased death rates among people in midlife extended to all racial and ethnic groups, and to suburbs and cities. The states with the greatest relative increases in death rates among young and middle-aged adults were New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, West Virginia, and Ohio. “The fact that it’s so expansive and involves so many causes of death—it’s saying that there’s something broader going on in our country,” says Meara. “This no longer limited to middle-aged whites.”
