It's insensitive to point out that eating and living unhealthily may result in a poor life expectancy?

You do something that may result in you getting arrested... You're probably gonna get arrested bro.

The only category that is arguably not related to personal experience is the homicide rate, but I'd guess a lot of that isn't a result of randomly walking down the street minding your own business.

This is so naive.

^^You do realize the obesity rate is separate from life expectancy right? You're basically telling me that it's a personal choice for someone to end their life earlier than anticipated. That's not a personal choice. That's a choice governed by their lack of being able to control how they feel about themselves, i.e. depression etc. (i fall into this category)

The fact that you just throw the two under the bus like it's nothing makes me lose more respect for you than you realize.

As usual everything is someone elses fault with you. Nevermind the fact that all of our biggest healthcare costs can be reduced with decisions that are financially beneficial to the consumer.

I'm not sure how much suicide factors into the life expectancy rates but I'd guess it is rather small. Obviously I have sympathy for anyone who has been effected by that, but I think it's fair to correlate the obesity and life expectancy rates.

I'm done. This is ****ing retarded. Get out of this thread.

Have you got the stats on American suicide rates compared with the U.K.? I don't, and am happy to be informed.

Also I'm sorry if my posts have a personal connection to you Ki. I am genuinely not aware enough of your circumstances to know if that's the case, so I'll be happy to stop discussing the subject.

Key 05-14-2017 08:27 PM

No personal connection at all. I'm just astounded that you can make the statement that suicide doesn't have much impact on the life expectancy rate. That's just pure ignorance.

Goofle 05-14-2017 08:34 PM

Obviously they have an impact. Every death has an impact. My point is that suicides themselves are probably not a huge impact on the overall statistic, and the comparative rate probably isn't hugely different in the U.K., therefore potentially irrelevant to the discussion of life expectancy between the two countries.

Again I ask for the stats because I'm too lazy to look it up right now.

Have you ever known anyone who was murdered?
