Countries with the longest life expectancy

Thanks to modern medicine, people are definitely living longer than they have in the past, but it turns out where you live could determine whether you live a long time or not.

A new study out of the University of Pennsylvania looked at life expectancy from 15 major countries and discovered that women in Switzerland live the longest, 79.3 years, while men in Australia have the longest life expectancy, 74.1 years.

As for the U.S., both women and men have the eighth-longest life expectancy, with women at 76.43 years, and men at 71.57 years.
