U.S. residents for decades had seen improvements in average life expectancy, but the trend reversed in 2014, according to a study published last week in JAMA. Researchers found that, since 2014, more U.S. residents have been dying at middle age from drug overdoses, diseases, obesity, suicide, and dozens of other causes. (Source: Washington Post, 11/26)
