Report: U.S. life expectancy lowest among wealthy nations due to disease, violence Report: U.S. life expectancy lowest among wealthy nations due to disease, violence
Not only do Americans live shorter lives than people in other wealthy nations, but they suffer more violent deaths compared to their peer countries, according to a report released Wednesday by two of the nation's leading health research institutions.

Researchers said the violence is due in part to the widespread possession of firearms and the practice of storing them at home in unlocked places.

Gun violence is just one of many factors contributing to lower U.S. life expectancy, but the finding took on urgency because the report comes less than a month after the shooting deaths of 26 people at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn.

For many years, Americans have been dying at younger ages that people in almost all other wealthy countries. In addition to the impact of gun violence, Americans consume the most calories among peer countries and get involved in more accidents that involve alcohol. People living in the U.S. lose more years of their life before they reach 50 due to alcohol and drugs compared to all the other nations in the study. In general, Americans had the lowest chance of surviving to 50.

In general, Americans had the lowest chance of surviving to 50.

Americans had the second-highest death rate from the most common form of heart disease, and the second-highest death rate from lung disease. People living in the U.S. also had the highest diabetes rates, with death rates from non-high school graduates with diabetes three times higher than those with some college. Americans also had the highest rate of infant mortality, STIs, teen pregnancy and car crash deaths.

The result is that the life expectancy for men in the United States ranked the lowest among the 17 countries reviewed, at 75.6 years, while the life expectancy for U.S. women ranked second lowest at 80.7 years right in front of Danish women. The countries reviewed included Canada, Japan, Australia and much of Western Europe.

Once again if you become sick the odds of survival in the US is greater than any nation in the world, THAT is the indicator of the greatness of a healthcare system.

Why do you think that the PM of Canada comes to the US for treatment and not using the Canadian National heathcare System

if the Canadian System is so great why did Citizens of Canada have to SUE the Government for the right to purchase US STYLE PRIVATE healthcare insurance..

Top court strikes down Quebec private health-care ban | CBC News

In a 4-3 decision, the panel of seven justices said banning private insurance for a list of services ranging from MRI tests to cataract surgery was unconstitutional under the Quebec Charter of Rights, given that the public system has failed to guarantee patients access to those services in a timely way.

As a result of delays in receiving tests and surgeries, patients have suffered and even died
in some cases, justices Beverley McLachlin, Jack Major, Michel Bastarache and Marie Deschamps found for the majority.

Danny Williams, the premier of the Canadian province of Newfoundland, traveled to the United States earlier this month to undergo heart valve surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami. With his trip, Williams joined a long list of Canadians who have decided that they prefer American medicine to their own country's government-run health system when their lives are on the line. it was the premeir of a poor province not the pm
