Newly-released aging statistics show that Americans are living longer, healthier lives. Life expectancy for men rose from 75.5 years in 2008 to 75.7 years in 2009, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For women, life expectancy increased from 80.5 years to 80.6 years. Federal data also showed declining death rates related to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, stroke and Alzheimer's disease. Certainly, people are taking better care of themselves. But it's also evident that life prolonging products and services are making a difference. And as people continue to live longer, new products will be needed to help ease the accompanying pains and limitations.
