"U.S. Has the Best Health Care in World" (with shocking statistics)

As recently published by Investor Business Daily, a survey by the U.N. International Health Organization has reported:

Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis: U.S. 65 percent, England 46 percent, Canada 42 percent.

Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months: U.S. 93 percent, England 15 percent, Canada 43 percent.

Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months: U.S. 90 percent, England 15 percent, Canada 43 percent.

Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month: U.S. 77 percent, England 40 percent, Canada 43 percent.

Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people: U.S. 71, England 14, Canada 18.

Percentage of seniors (65 and older) with low income who say they are in “excellent health”: U.S. 12 percent, England 2 percent, Canada 6 percent.

Released from many of the existing government restrictions and controls, these can most rapidly be improved by private enterprise, where there are the profit incentive and the threat of failure.

Those stats will never be uttered by Obama, the clowns on the left and the liberal media.

only thing i think the US could do better at is Prevenative care and focusing more on healthy living. but that said you can't force people to change their lifestyle unless you take everything out of the market and make someone exercise at gun point

What would help is to require students from 1st grade to 12 to participate in Phys Ed. Doing 30 min. of physical exercise would do wonders. I live a couple of blocks from 2 private schools. I see them running thru the neighborhood on a daily basis. Very few lard asses in the bunch. On the other hand, my liberal bleeding heart TV station states that these fat ass school kids get only 1 hot meal a day .
