The study said Americans pay more than $7,900 per person for healthcare each year - far more than any other OECD country - but still die earlier than their peers in the industrialized world.

The cost of healthcare in the United States is 62 percent higher than that in Switzerland, which has a similar per capita income and also relies substantially on private health insurance.

...

The OECD said U.S. life expectancy of 78.2 years ranked 28th - just behind Chile's and well below the average of 79.5 years among member nations.

Americans eat chemicals instead of food. Even when the food begins as something real it is full of chemicals.

It's extremely difficult and expensive to eat right in this country and it is killing us.

The "traditional American diet" didn't make our parents and grandparents fat, but today it is blamed for the epidemic of obesity. Why? We aren't eating a traditional American diet...we are eating junk.

Not saying we're perfect, but don't go imagining it's a paradise elsewhere, folks

The same Daily Mail.uk slags UK health care too:

Hospital left dying mother on trolley for hours

[link to www.dailymail.co.uk]

NHS care hospitals treat elderly like slabs meat:

[link to www.dailymail.co.uk]


Dereliction of duty that shames hospitals

They are statistics that shame Britain, and the NHS in particular.

Last year, in our generously-funded and supposedly caring hospitals, almost four people died every day suffering from malnutrition or dehydration.

Unforgivably, that is 1,316 patients who lost their lives wanting for a glass of water, a nutritious meal or proper medical care.
