    I read a few years ago this was going to happen. Obesity is, IMHO, the main reason. I believe the decline will continue until American change their eating habits.

    If I had eaten properly and exercised for the last 70 years I might theoretically live 5 years longer. Let's see, 70 years, 3 hours of exercise a week which I hate, 50 weeks per year . . . that's 105,000 hours. Say 2000 work hours in a year, that's about 50 years equivalent of work/exercise. Not a fair exchange.
