It's all very well living longer, but when you have to spend a massive portion of that life in a tin can under the sea it's not much of a life is it. And yes, I was on Turbulent for a while before anyone gobs off about me being a skimmer who doesn't know what it is like on a boat.
Personaly I waould rather have quality over quantity, and a nice bit of fresh air and sunshine in the morning.
Doesn't differentiate between deisel boats and nukes does it? A follow up study might be useful now........The last sentence is amazing! "Excess deaths from cirrhosis of the liver, and from accidents and violence after leaving the Navy, were of some concern but they cannot be attributed directly to the submarine environment." How about a bit of investigation on the "indirectly" then?!
