Jack sent me the following message yesterday:
Bernie Sanders' Longevity Stats Issues
He will be 75 if he assumes the Presidency.
Based on life table info for the USA http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr58/nvsr58_21.pdf
He has a 17% chance of dying in his first term, and a 24% chance of dying before the end of a second term.
His chances for major pathology short of death is of course much higher but not addressed by life tables..
I find it unacceptable that political correctness would trump discussion of these real issues.
