DescriptionRecent research has shown an unexpected rise in death rates among middle-aged, white Americans between 1999 and 2014. While increased substance abuse and suicides explain the elevated mortality rates for younger adults, middle-aged whites also seem to be experiencing stalled or rising mortality rates for most ailments and diseases.
