 Life Expectancy of Least-Educated Whites in the U.S. Drops
Contrary to expectations, life expectancy for the country's least-educated whites has fallen in the last four years.

Earlier, educated Americans were enjoying the benefits of life expectancy but now research shows that life spans for the least educated Americans have come down.
