    Do you have a link for this? If life expectancy is averaged out across a population, those who die young (e.g. in accidents and disasters) will clearly move the average down, so if you have reached an older age the average life expectancy for your age group is now higher.

    It's making me wonder how the figures are compiled. I'd like to see figures that exclude accidents, etc., to see how different they are.

    I do not have the link. It was for my mother, so I did not note the source. It was a U.S. government site - CDC or census data perhaps.

    I was surprised at the small gain from birth to age 21. Infant mortality must not be much of a factor anymore.

    Has anyone found a test (s) to determine if mitochondria are dysfunctional or ATP not working ??? I have not been tested for CoQ10 levels. If I have to go thru another blood test i there a blood test for ATP or mito status??
