Americans are living longer.
A new study from the centers for disease control looked at mortality rates from the last 75 years.
It finds that the overall risk of dying has dropped 60 percent since 1935.
But the leading causes of death have not changed.
Heart disease and cancer remained the number one and number two killers, every year of the study.
