AZUZ: And a new study has projected that South Korea will be the country where people will live the longest in the decades ahead. This was published this week in the medical journal "The Lancet". It looked at life expectancy for 35 industrialized nations. It took into account child mortality rates, obesity rates, health care, diets, cultural lifestyles.
Currently, the World Health Organization says the global life expectancy at birth is jut over 71 years. The Lancet study expects that to increase by the year 2030 with South Korea leading the way. It's projected life expectancy by 2030 almost 91 years for women and 84 years for men. The researchers say unhealthier lifestyles among men, which may include smoking or drinking alcohol, are reasons why they don't tend to live as long. The scientists also say the gap between the sexes is shrinking.

Other countries in the top five for projected women's life expectancy are Spain, Portugal, Slovenia and Switzerland. For men, Switzerland, Netherlands, Australia and Denmark.
For the U.S., predicted life expectancy for men would be 79 1/2 by 2030, and for women, more than 83 years.
