According to the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the life expectancy for New Yorkers is at an all time high, with life expectancy at 79.4 years. However, according to this report, men continue to die six years younger than women, 76 vs 82 years with more than 1/3 of deaths among NYC men occurring before the age of 65.

Why is this the case? And what can be done about it?
