US Life Expectancy Falls Again Due to Overdoses and Suicides

"So assaultive injuries occur mainly among black Americans, whereas suicide injuries occur among older white Americans".
A report from a few months ago says North Dakota had the largest suicide rate increase.
The decline is not the cause of some new widespread disease, rather the cause of something preventable.
The decrease in life expectancy is a sign that many in the US are not getting the care they need for addiction and other mental health problems. The suicide rate in 1999 was 10.5 per 100,000 deaths, while today it has risen to 14.5, the highest rate in 50 years.
More than 70,000 died from drug overdoses in the U.S.in 2017, a ten percent increase from the year before. "So we actually got on the radar of the CDC because of our percentage increase". Only 17,000 people died of overdoses that year.
"Higher suicide rates in rural areas are due to almost 60 percent of rural homes having a gun versus less than half of homes in urban areas", psychiatrist and behavioral scientist Keith Humphreys of Stanford University says.
"The increase partly reflects the nation's growing and aging population. But it's deaths in younger age groups - particularly middle-aged people - that have had the largest impact on calculations of life expectancy, experts said".
The Centers for Disease Control says life expectancy in the US continues to decline.
Reduced life expectancy usually falls with age, but it dropped suddenly at age 20 for black Americans as a result of being shot and killed, and steadily fell after the age of 20 among white Americans as a result of firearms suicide. This may not seem significant on its own, but when taken as part of the three-year trend, we're in the midst of the longest-lasting decline in life expectancy in the USA since World War I.
The study authors point out that research in 2000 revealed a difference in deaths linked to gun violence between black and white Americans-a trend that has continued-but this gap looks to have widened even further, with the total premature loss of life even greater.
Drug overdose deaths in this country are at an all-time high. One of the reasons that more people are dying from drug overdose is because of the easy access to Fentanyl, which is a synthetic opioid. This decline is being fueled by the increase in suicide, as well as increases in overdose deaths.
The total number of deaths recorded in the nation reached more than 2.8 million in 2017, about 69,000 more than in 2016, the report showed, as the overdose death rate climbed 9.6 percent compared to 2016, while suicides rose 3.7 percent.
