The center for disease control and prevention has been mentioned to have cited a greater achievement which has led to the longevity of the American life. It has been credited with adding 25 years to the life expectancy of the Americans in the 20th century. The life expectancy in the recent century is due to the improvements that have made in the social as well as public health. The health officers and epistemologies have stated that the increase in the last 200 years of the life expectancy was as a result of the control of the infectious diseases that for over a longer period of time has been the main reason for the death of the number of citizens in America.
First public health revolution before the advent of advanced surgical techniques as well as the antibiotics and this era has brought a lot of contribution to the increase of the life expectancy in America. The great public health administration has been concentrated in the vaccination, safer workplace, safer workplaces, healthier mothers and babies, family planning and recognizing the impacts of tobacco on the human health. The existing system in the health system has developed an adaptation in responding public health threats. The vaccines for children have been developed so as to enable enough distribution of vaccines to children under the age of 5 who are in a position to be infected by a number of diseases (Austin, np).
For a number of years, the public has been arrogant on the factors that have led to the increase of life expectancy in America. However, this group of people are the one responsible for the past health situation that was seen in the past. The society needs to play a role in the supporting the expanding of the increasing life expectancy to the Americans and addressing the factors that lead to improved nation healthy.
