Description

The latest study, published in American Journal of Public Health, looks at life expectancy data over 20 years. In the decade between 1995 and 2005, life expectancy for men at the age of 15 rose from 57.08 years to 58.25 years. Over the following 10 years, life expectancy for men at the age of 15 only rose by half a year—a slowdown that has been directly attributed to a surge in murders, as the government’s “war on drugs” with cartels spills over to the civilian population.
