CITIZENS OF WELL FED COUNTRIES LIVE 30 YEARS LONGER


THAN CITIZENS OF AFRICAN VILLAGES.  I WONDER (BURP) WHY.

Life expectancy in the richest countries of the world now exceeds the poorest by more than 30 years, figures show. The gap is widening across the world, with Western countries and the growing economies of Latin America and the Far East advancing more rapidly than Africa and the countries of the former Soviet Union.

Average life expectancy in Britain and similar countries  was 78.8 in 2000-05, an increase of more than seven years since 1970-75 and almost 30 years over the past century. In sub-Saharan Africa, life expectancy has increased by just four months since 1970, to 46.1 years.

Narrowing this "health gap" will involve going beyond the immediate causes of disease - poverty, poor sanitation and infection - to tackle the "causes of the causes" - the social hierarchies in which people live, the Global Commission on the Social Determinants of Health says in a report.

Professor Sir Michael Marmot, chairman of the commission established by the World Health Organisation in 2005, who first coined the term "status syndrome", said social status was the key to tackling health inequalities worldwide.

In the 1980s, in a series of ground-breaking studies among Whitehall civil servants, Professor Marmot showed that the risk of death among those on the lower rungs of the career ladder was four times higher than those at the top, and that the difference was linked with the degree of control the individuals had over their lives.

CONTROL over your life gives longevity? Or being at one with 'how it is.' Peace. Inner peace. Lack of struggle. An attitude of Gratitude. Even living on a dime, one can fake THAT... Living frugally.
The peoples of the Third World live with mosquitoes, filth, parasites, on a diet of powdered milk and flour, lethal, mucus producing, and live to age forty? Probably kills most by twenty. Forty is a miracle. On  a diet of sheep's milk, quinoa and raw Blood, the  African cow herder tribe, the Masai live to l00. 

The Hunzakut live to 130 even 180 !

The famed Villagers of Villacumba Ecuador live long but not as LONG as researchers first were TOLD. That was a quasi Hoax by Naive seniors who couldn't count.   http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/hoax/archive/permalink/vilcabamba_the_town_of_very_old_people
