This Country Is About to Overtake Japan for Longest Life Expectancy (Video)

Spain will soon overtake Japan in the global life expectancy ratings for the first time, according to a new report by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.

According to CNN, who analyzed the data published in the journal Lancet, people from Spain will live for 85.8 years on average by the year 2040. Those living in Japan are expected to have an average lifespan of 85.7 years over the same time period, people in Singapore can expect to live 85.4 years, and the Swiss round out the top four and can expect to live 85.2 years.

But, while Spain and other nations are rising in life expectancy rankings, the United States is plummeting. The U.S. will drop from 43rd to 64th place, with an average life expectancy of 79.8 by the year 2040. Those living in the U.S. will live only 1.1 years longer on average by 2040, CNN explained, while, on average, other countries will see their life expectancy rise 4.4 years over the same period.
