    Costa Rica is an affluent country? Canada had exactly the same stats as we did 30 years ago. They instituted a Universal Health Care plan, and now their stats are much better than ours in almost every aspect of health. Including a lead of over three years in longevity.

    And of course, you would not expect the Wall Street Journal to point out that for profit Health Care companies might be one of the factors in our dismal health statistics.

    Stats are mathematical lies.

    except cancer survival rates you mean.

    again the point here is that our ability to diagnose and treat disease is certainly not worse then the rest of the world.
