Do Men In Israel Live Longer?

Perhaps it's time I seriously started thinking about moving over there (or at least revisiting it again).

(Israel National News) A new research study shows that Israeli men have one of the longest lifespans of those in developed countries. The average Israeli man can expect to live 78 years, higher than in other developed countries except for Iceland, where the average lifespan is 79.2 years, and Japan, Switzerland, Sweden and Australia, where men live a few months longer than in Israel.

Israeli women live longer then their mates, although it is about the same as the rest of the civilized world. The article credits this to the number of doctors in the region, but I think the real reason lies with those mysterious bar mitzvahs.

  1. It's because they are married to Israeli Jewish women!!!

  2. If that is true, then perhaps half the world needs to convert in order to grant long life to the other half.
