Have you ever tried to really asses the quality of care given in the US based on any statistical evidence?Average life expectancy,access to preventive care,outcomes for any specific diangnosis.What is even more important than statistical outcomes is the stage at which certain diseases are identified.People in the US usually are diagnosed much later in the disease process because routine screenings are often not covered.I often hear people talking about their fear of "government death panels" deciding who get treatment and who doesn't.Don't insurance companies do the same thing?I can tell you first hand that they do.

Most of those countries with higher life expectancy, do so because of diet and exercise, not because they are given better treatment. And they don't have their Government pushing corn and soy on the citizens. And they don't have an immigration problem. Or the Lawyer problem. Despite a lower-than-average life expectancy, the U.S. ranks the highest in survival of some cancers.

U.S. survival rates are the world's highest among breast cancer patients and the second highest, after Japan, for people with colorectal cancer.

the United States is at the front of the pack when it comes to costly medical procedures including knee replacements, MRI and CT scans and tonsillectomies.

And it is consistently at the top of the cost chart for a number of procedures including caesarean sections, which are almost twice as expensive in the United States as in Germany.

Therefore, we can conclude most of it is due to the poor diet and misinformation from our Government to help farmers.

most of our troubles with our health care system have to do with poor diet?..... misinformation?.... and corporate welfare to farmers like 1st distrcit congressman elect doug lamalfa??

most analysts cite administrative costs of private health insurance firms.....(AKA profits)

euprope isnt ahead of us because just because the practice preventative care??

they are ahead because they dont have profit motive in their system...

so??? how the would farm subsidies have anything to do with health care cost outcomes??

what type of "misinformation" are you talking about....

your canadidate for presdient outlined his plan for the poor when they get sick....
...visit the emergency room...
..isnt this the kind of "misinformation" you are citing?

throngs of people visiting the emergency room would surly drive overall health care costs through the roof....

mabey that is what a president ROmney would have "replaced" obama care with.....exactly nothing, which is what we had before the ACA.

The topic I was responding to was about living longer and Country comparisons. Not preventative care comparing Europe. Do you realize Europe is not a country? But if you were to change the topic to comparing USA to Europe, yes they are better in some and then USA is better in some. Should we strive to be best in all? of course and we are. It depends on the cancer or illness, US leads on many categories.

No fool. I'm citing the misinformation that our Government has been putting out there for years and years about nutrition. Most of it to support farmers growing poison like soy and corn. For health and nutrition, I don't look for my Government for answers. But they brain wash our kids in schools with stupid food pyramids that are backwards.

A Uruguayan activist and government aide is supporting by turning the government into the country's leading marijuana dealer.

The proposal formally introduced to Congress last week would create a National Cannabis Institute with the power to license people and companies to produce marijuana for recreational, medical or industrial uses.

After all, it's all about money anyway.

On a national holiday about gratitude and thanksgiving you rant about what's wrong with food.
Take a little time off.
Let's just leave it at, you don't look for answers.
Hey pea brain did you know that they are counted as a starch rather than a vegetable?

If that is what you regard as discussion it's no wonder you had nothing to do yesterday.
You should refrain from expressing yourself until you learn the difference between listening and hearing.
But as previously stated, it's the problems you like.
I am certain anyone who wants to can tune in to the public forums to see your drivel forever, because you're not going anywhere.
Happy Holidays.
