Life Expectancy

Life expectancy for males declines by one year every stop on the Jubilee Line east of Westminster. For a male in Russia it is only fifty nine.  At the same time, and I find this hard to believe when you see the vast size of so many American women, the life expectancy of a baby girl in Chicargo is over a hundred. If you made it to forty in 1840, and that was a monumental ‘if’, your life expectancy was only four years shorter than it would be now.
