NBC's in-house physician Nancy Snyderman celebrated the public health advances of "better nutrition, vaccinations and antibiotics" that have, until now, "allowed each generation to live longer than the one before." Since 1960, for example, the life expectancy of American men has grown by seven years and by six years for women. Now, Snyderman warned, there are signs that those data are "stagnant, even declining." The first danger signals have been found among southern women "likely the result of smoking, high blood pressure and obesity."
