Quote Of The Week: Amazing Advances In Life Expectancies

Four million years of evolution extended average life expectancies by 11 years.  But over the last 120 years alone, we’ve extended life expectancies on this planet by an additional 40 to 42 years. 

We sometimes forget that 50% or more of all economic growth in the world can be attributed to public health and medical research. The greatest achievement of mankind, of womankind, has been the extension of life expectancy.”

Mike Milken, Chairman of the Milken Institute, May 21, 2020, speaking at an event for Goal 17 Partners, a private sector sustainability initiative, on the need for private/public medical research to solve the COVID-19 challenge.
