The FT has reported that:
The life expectancy of a 65-year-old at the start of this year was around two months shorter, for both males and females, compared with 2016, according to data from the Continuous Mortality Investigation, a private company owned by the UK’s Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.
That's worrying. That was not the news I wanted on the first day of the month in which I can apply for a Senior Citizen Railcard for the first time. I'd better stick to the diet, keep off the hard liquor and keep walking the dog, just in case.
