    This is a really frightening trend, and one of the few news article I've ever read that actually distressed me. However reading through:

    Thus from the same pool of people in 1990, life-spans might really have simply stayed stagnant or declined slightly as the other studies indicate.

    While an explanation that's being thrown around in the lack of health care, along with welfare reforms, those do not take into account that the least-educated blacks and Hispanics have gained in life expectancy. In addition Hispanics in general live longer than whites despite being poorer and now the least-educated black women are living longer than the least-educated white women.
