"Aftonbladet's leader board is the independent social democrat."
"”Look forward, so much older, we will become”. So reads the headline of a one year old Aftonbladet article. On the photo you can see two happy pensioners at a marina. The optimistic idea that we will live longer, have both my own and my föräldrageneration were fed. But some have doubted."
"Now, show new figures from statistics SWEDEN, the life expectancy is getting higher – if you are highly skilled. But for the ordinary workers are the prospects worse. For arbetarkvinnor life expectancy for the first time in a long time, not just stopped – it has fallen."
"2010 went the then red-green party leader to a arbetarområde in Stockholm to meet with the assessing the needs of older people."
"– most in this area is working class. We have not fit 80-year-olds who play golf, " explained one of the officers."
"When she was told about the extended retirement age this year, she said: ”Idiotic. workers will die before they get to retire”."
"She is usually right, I should know because it is my mother."

The idea of lazy workers who are unable to make healthy decisions has become truth.

"Research shows that psychological stress is equally crucial for longevity. To feel the financial security and control over their lives is important. But can well-educated sit back and rely on a longer life? Would not believe it. The same research shows that psychological stress and insecurity also affects academics. It is about unemployment, job insecurity or concern over the boendesituationen. Their behavior is more difficult to wave away as the result of an unhealthy lifestyle."
"We are all fed with the same message: smoking is bad, obesity and underweight shortens one's life and everyone should ”move on”. But reduces we life to something that is only about individual choices, we make it easy for us. Many look with disdain on those who are overweight, they judge the person on sick leave and as long as we feel good, we wonder why others don't just uproot themselves and start eating vegetables."
"periodically asked why the world's oldest people how they survived. The tips are everything from raw eggs every day, ten hours of sleep, religion, and pig's trotters. But for those who really want to live longer it still seems to be about to be born into the right class. "
"An injustice that will accompany us into death.▪"
