    Middle-aged white Americans are dying at increasing rates and half a million people are dead who should not be, according to a new report published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

    The study, co-authored by Anne Case and Angus Deaton, analyzed death rates for men and women aged 45 to 54 in the United States, a range often categorized as "middle-age." The duo, both economics professors at Princeton, then compared the data to those death rates found within other domestic racial categories and those seen in similarly wealthy nations.

    Black, Hispanic and older Americans (65 and up) have continued to see longer lives, as have those in Sweden, Australia, Germany and other rich nations, but middle-aged white Americans have not. The results represented a "marked increase" in mortality between 1999 and 2013, and the trends seem to "reverse decades of progress in mortality and was unique to the United States."

    Those with less education were also more likely to die in middle age due to suicide or alcohol and drug poisoning, the authors note.

    The study links the increase in mortality to a slew of problematic issues seen throughout American society, including an increase in drug and alcohol abuse and an increase in suicide rates. White men had the highest suicide rate of any demographic in 2013, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    Obama's policies are doing a pretty good job of knocking out police officers too. His war on a civilized society is being shoved on us.

    I bet he gets a boner every time he thinks about what Merkel is doing to Germany and how white guilt is allowing and encouraging the muslim invasion of Europe.
    . His only wish is that he could be the one to do that to our country

    London is getting a kick in the pants over this too. Someone really is letting their policies be implemented. It was on Breitbart, SiriusXM 125 this morning from 6-9am EST.

    Don't the police have a divorce rate of between 60 and 75%? It seems like their wives aren't as impressed with them as you police groupies are.
