Could it be?

On Wednesday May 3, 2006, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published an amazing article. It was the report of a study funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) which shows that despite the American government spending twice as much as the British government on the health of each citizen, Americans were far sicker than their English counterparts. How could that happen?

This dismal report shows that Americans had higher rates of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, strokes, lung disease and cancer. Health experts have long known the U.S. population is less healthy than that of other industrialized nations, according to several important measurements, including life expectancy. The U.S. ranks behind about two dozen other countries, according to the statistics of the World Health Organization. How could that happen? What has gone wrong?

  • Surely Bill thats a rhetorical question. Most "healt" officials wouldn't know their kneebone from their backbone and they get well paid to stay stupid. Trouble is they enforce their stupidity as public policy and we are getting sicker as the drug companies just are raking it in.
