Not everything keeps getting better forever:

The study pins the decrease in life expectancy on an increase in fatal drug overdoses, suicides, and obesity-related health problems. A wave of lung cancer deaths is also dragging down the life expectancy average as smokers hit their 50s. I imagine this factor will vanish once they die off and are replaced by people who never smoked.
