[Comment] Macro-level perspective to reverse recent mortality increases

Life expectancy is like a social mirror that reflects the overall wellbeing of a population. It has been increasing steadily for nearly two centuries in many parts of the world, in large part because of improved standards of living, public health interventions, and medical advances. Only severe epidemiological or sociopolitical shocks, such as the 1918 flu epidemic and the fall of the Soviet Union, have temporarily interrupted the steady rise in life expectancy.
