O learned one, in this iron age of Kali men have but short lives(ālpāyuṣaḥ). They are quarrelsome (kalāu), lazy (mandāḥ), misguided (sumanda-matayaḥ), unlucky (manda-bhāgyā) and, above all, always disturbed (upadrutāḥ).

Purport by Srila Prabhupada:

In Kali-yuga, the duration of life is shortened not so much because of insufficient food but because of irregular habits. By keeping regular habits and eating simple food, any man can maintain his health. Overeating, over-sense gratification, overdependence on another’s mercy, and artificial standards of living sap the very vitality of human energy. Therefore the duration of life is shortened.

1. Overeating
2. Over-sense gratification
3. Over-dependence on another's mercy
4. And artificial standards of living  

OOO three times        

Notice the whole purport is punch.

Srila Prabhupada ki Jai!
