(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) During the two years that President Joe Biden has occupied the White House, life expectancy in the United States has fallen to its lowest level since 1996 as official figures show that drug overdose deaths reached their highest levels in recorded history last year.
Data from the National Center for Health Statistics reveals that life expectancy in the US declined by more than a year between 2014 and 2020, from 78.9 years to 77.8 years, the Daily Mail reported.
Health authorities blamed a number of factors for the decline, including the COVID-19 pandemic and the isolation and lockdowns that followed as well as drug overdoses, suicide, chronic liver disease, cirrhosis and homicide.
The report exposed that the decline in life expectancy is particularly pronounced among younger Americans, with those under the age of 65 experiencing a greater decrease than those over the age of 65.
The official report failed to mention the role that experimental mRNA COVID-19 injections played in the drop in the life expectancy, particularly among young people who died suddenly after getting a shot.
Meanwhile, a final 2021 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that overdose deaths in the U.S. increased by about 16% since 2021, with about 107,000 overdose deaths reported. There were 92,000 overdose deaths in 2020.
The report noted that the increase in overdose deaths is driven in large part by the increased availability of illicit drugs, particularly synthetic opioids. The reports comes as Biden’s open border policies have allowed a flood of illegal and deadly drugs to pour across the border in record number.
The DEA recently announced that more than 379 million deadly doses of fentanyl were seized during 2022, enough to kill every single American, with unknown quantities of the deadly doses making into cities and towns across America.
Fentanyl-driven overdose deaths are now the leading cause of death for Americans 18-45 years old.

Many of the deaths have come from users whose drugs were contaminated with fentanyl without their knowledge. Fentanyl deaths jumped 182%.
Stimulants, like amphetamines, as well as benzodiazepines, prescription painkillers and heroin continue to cause overdose deaths, too. Drug overdose deaths have increased five-fold in the past decade. The number of overdose deaths in 2000 stood at less than 20,000 per year.
