TORONTO—When we calculate how well off we are, it’s not just a matter of money. Our standard of living depends on our health as well as our income. In fact, one could argue that the single best measure of human progress is the gain in life expectancy—particularly the gain in healthy lives. According to Statistics Canada, average life expectancy for men born in 2009-2011 is 79.3 years, compared to just 58.8 years if you were born in 1920-22.
