Too true. The deception is in the words 'average lifespan' vs.

Average for those who live past 12 years of age, when most childhood diseases are apt to occur.

Yet even having cured most of these diseases, the average lifespan has STILL declined! One could argue that this is because so many of the 'weak' were allowed to live when historically they wouldn't have, but this also becomes an indictment of the medical complex since they aren't helping anyone in the aggregate, the healthy OR the weak, to live longer or for that matter happy/healthier lives...
