Nice Stats from the grave, we are happy to know about

Evolution of life expectancy through time

It is not cool, but I have to admit that politcians are right. Life expectancy seems to increase.

WWII Is likely to be the cause of the observable decreasing of life expectancy during the 40's and 50's.
