    UK life expectancy has stopped.

    Life expectancy progress in UK 'stops for first time'.

    Life expectancy in the UK has stopped improving for the first time since 1982 when figures began.

    Women's life expectancy from birth remains 82.9 years, and for men it is 79.2, the figures from the Office for National Statistics for 2015-17 show.

    In some parts of the UK life expectancy has even decreased.

    For men and women in Scotland and Wales it declined by more than a month, while men in Northern Ireland have seen a similar fall.

    Maybe this is just a hiccup and the longevity will start to extend again when life settles down.

    Any comments folks ?

    Yes that topic was on the national news last night.

    I am sure that this is just another bit of evidence that Brexit is throwing everything out of gear even before we know what the outcome will be.

    To tell you the truth, I wish it was all done and dusted one way or another as then we can start to re-plan our lives.

    I agree that when we are finally out of this Brexit worry the results of longevity for British people will come back and keep improving once again.

    There is no doubt that worry is a killer.

    At my school they are offering discussion groups to help with stress and worry.

    I might just take them up on the offer.

    As science and medicine keep on making advances there should be a correlation with human longevity.

    There has been a connection up until recently, but for some strange reason this connection is now being lost.
