Not dieing listed as number one cause of longer life expectancy in NYC

According to the New York Daily News we New Yorkers have the highest life expectancy in recorded history. More so than any other city. Really.

Health Commissioner Thomas Farley thinks it's because of "the improvement of a few behaviors and conditions that have a big impact on health problems, particularly smoking, HIV/AIDS reduction and reductions in injuries." Wait, less cancer, disease and falling down IMPROVES health? Whoa. No wonder he's Health Commissioner.

The average life expectancy for women is now 82 years, and for men, it's 76.3 years. The leading cause of death for people between the age of 15 and 34 continues to remain (da da dummmm)...homicide.

Besides longing to see what will happen next on the Jersey Shore and New York is Ridiculous I can't imagine why any of us are living longer. Can you?
