Rice University and University of Colorado Announce that US Life Expectancy Is Stagnating

June 26, 2012

Reports have announced that the US life expectancy is stagnating and falling behind that of many other countries across the world as people try to discover the keys to a longer, healthier life.

Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 26, 2012

A new report that was released by Rice University and the University of Colorado, at the same time as a new report on life expectancy supplement coral calcium, announces that the life expectancy in the United States was found to be stagnating and falling behind that of many other countries. It was also interesting that an age gap of about five years was found between the life expectancy of the most affluent Americans and the poorest American citizens, such a gap being explained as potentially a healthcare system which favors the more affluent end of American society. Overall in the United States, even though the general life expectancy rate has made minor advances over the past one hundred plus years, it disappointed many scientists to find that America still trails many of the other nations in the world and that any advances that did occur in American life expectancy have not occurred recently. The most significant advances in United States life expectancy occurred in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. In recent years, the average life expectancy of United States citizens has begun to flatten rather than increase.

It has been found that residents of Okinawa, Japan have been living significantly longer than many other human beings around the world. In fact, people living specifically in Okinawa were even outpacing the life spans of people living in other areas of their same country such as the Japanese mainland. When the Japanese government set out to explain this phenomenon, they came to the conclusion that the cause of the significantly longer lifespan in the citizens of Okinawa was due to the levels of calcium found in the coral water. This calcium substance is now known as coral calcium (researchers also found benefits in the use of Hyaluronic Acid) and it has a 2:1 ratio of calcium to magnesium and it contains many trace minerals and marine microbes, which also aide the body in many ways such as helping with digestion. Robert R. Barefoot has even published a report detailing the impact of coral calcium and its benefits for human health and lifespan at http://www.coralsupreme.com/. As coral calcium increases in popularity, many people outside of Okinawa are discovering its health benefits.
