Heres an insight that Im in a priveleged position to know: the
Seventh Day Adventist church has a retirement fund for its
employees which is in trouble. You have a great test group here
of people who have never smoked, light or no alcohol, mostly
vegetarian, generally clean living people. The fund is in big
trouble because the retired church workers live and live and live.
By watching this fund and the number of years lived by those
drawing, we should be able to collect some insights on the
real life expectancy curve with respect to time, not that which
the insurance industry would have us believe. spike
