    Excellent points that sensationalist, doom and gloom media outlets would never waste their breath on. Thanks!

    Nice Article…

    BUT, it’s no real big surprise. This type of cr@p happens with all supposed “irrefutable” evidence/facts from the scare about Global Warming all the way to the misinformation about Triclosan. Unfortunately,(I have to agree with Mark) sensationalism about impending doom generates ratings,so, we’ll always have to do the research on our own to find out the truth.

    Well, Diana – yes, but…

    I would suggest that a major factor in the 65-74 age group having succeeded in reaching that age is that most of them have not had a heart attack, cancer etc.

    I suspect that if you redid those figures and included both those who are aged 65-74 and those who would have been that age had they survived, you might see some more sobering numbers.
