If you buy food that has a label and/or ingredient list then youíre doing it wrong. Real food doesnít require a description for you to know exactly what it is
link to original post




in 1900, before many of the ingredients that are used today in food were available the average lifespan of a male was about 46.6 years

the average lifespan of a male now is about 74.5 years

the increased lifespan is not due to using these ingredients, but it doesn't appear that they are tremendously harmful

Your claim that "real food" doesn't have labels or ingredient lists.

Average lifespans in the past are very heavily skewed due to infant mortality. Once you factor that in, then we aren't living too much longer than we did in, say, the Middle Ages.

EDIT: Okay, I just looked on Wikipedia, and if you take out infant mortality, the average human lifespan from the 12th to 19th centuries was about 55 years old.

Yeah, but the list was on the label. ;)
May the cards fall in your favor.

My understanding is that human lifespan hasnít increased one bit in ďmodernĒ times. Read the biographies of ancient Greek philosophers and itís surprising how many lived to be 70 and 80.

The much lower life expectancy is due to infant mortality, wars, famines and lack of modern medicine (routine things today like pneumonia or flesh wounds were often fatal back then).

You forgot drug overdoses and auto deaths have likely shot way up as time goes on.

.

according to the link - in 1950 - in the U.S. - when a man reached age 65 his life expectancy was then 12.8 years

in 2000 when a man reached 65 - his life expectancy had increased to 16.1 years

data such as this from before 1950 is not available - at least not here

Edit - the 2nd link gives more up to date info

according to it by 2014 the life expectancy of a 65 year old male was now 18 years

and then in 2020 it slipped back down to 17 years

Combined life expectancy in Japan is 85 and 88 for females

Itís gotta be due to all the processed food they eat

Auto deaths peaked in the late 70s at around 50,000 a year and have declined since. DWI enforcement, raising the drinking age, airbags, better road and car design, and young drivers honing their skills on video games are all given credit.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.
