    A group of middle-aged whites in the U.S. is dying at a startling rate

    The day of the dead was yesterday. It's a big holiday in the South-West and after reading this article, some might be celebrating death a little sooner.

    They say the average gay man will not live past 55. In regards to that I found this news article fascinating. It points out that......

    The mortality rate for white men and women ages 45-54 with less than a college education increased markedly between 1999 and 2013, most likely because of problems with legal and illegal drugs, alcohol and suicide, the researchers concluded. Before then, death rates for that group dropped steadily, and at a faster pace.

    ....will you be among them?

    Maybe so, but they have increased for 45-55 year olds.

    Yes, suicide is a shame. But factor out the deaths from booze and drugs - those people die smiling and happy.
