One If By Pill! Two if By Surgery! The British Are Beating Us in Health!

Us-uk-english From US News Health.  American healthcare is fantastic at treating acute conditions (surgery, broken bones) but not so with chronic illness, most of which is a function of the terrible American diet.

WEDNESDAY, March 9 (HealthDay News) -- From birth through old age, Americans have poorer health than their British counterparts, a new study finds.

Researchers used data on nearly 40,000 residents of the United States and 70,000 residents of England taken from nationally representative health surveys of the respective countries.

After all the numbers were crunched, Americans had higher rates of nearly all chronic diseases and markers of diseases than people of a similar age in England.

Those diseases and signs of poor health included: obesity, low HDL (good) cholesterol, high overall cholesterol, high C-reactive protein (a sign of inflammation), diabetes and asthma.

American women had significantly higher rates of high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack or angina than English women of a similar age. For males, heart attack or angina is higher in the United States only at younger ages. High blood pressure is the one measure that was higher in England than in the United States at young ages among males....

Howdy guys, how are you?

My name is Kevin, I'm 15, and I know how to do actual research.

You can't prove the vaccines have any relation AT ALL with Autism, or most of the rest of this crap for the matter. The fact is most European countries have cleaner air, water, food, they eat healthier, exercise more, don't rely on technology as much as us, and a number of other variables.

If you have no proof at all then why keep fighting?

Honestly all you people accomplish is making more people hurt or dead. I know you mean well. But look at the science! You have to understand that there are kids who can't get vaccinated. All you people are doing is convincing more people not to let their kids get vaccinated, and potentially harm the kids who can't get vaccinated for medical reasons.

If I'm 15 and I understand this, why can't you intelligent adults?

I think that the UK is kidding themselves because they are hated and unhealthy but just less than the US. Really, I mean being second to last is not even worthy of mention let alone celebration. See how they compare to Greece or Iceland in terms of health and then I will care.

Britain still has a higher autism rate than the US...although only slightly. The food we all eat isn't food it's processed chemicals and cardboard. Toxins in food, in water,in the air we breathe, medicine we all take and in vaccines. Toxins make people sick. Toxic US AND toxic UK - we're not far behind and neither of us has a health record to be proud of.

US is also the most vaccinated country on earth. A connection must be drawn. Obesity is not merely a function of too many calories. It is a complex set of contributing factors. There are autoimmune factors. Vaccines can cause autoimmunity. The increase in diabetes coincides with the increase in vaccines. Asthma in children is skyrocketing also. This coincides with the increase in vaccines.

The amount of money spent per person on health care could be looked at as a cause of worse health. Everyone knows that the more medical "care" one receives (well-baby checks for example) the less healthy they are. There is a point of diminishing return and I think we have gone way way beyond that.

'Lies, damned lies and statistics'

We're just as sick in the UK!!

"It's especially notable that this paper compared Americans to people in England, who are considered among the least healthy Europeans, Martinson said."

USA - once upon a time (1950, before immunizations) #3 in the world league of lowest child mortality rate, now in position #46. And sliding.

Things very seriously need to change.

Hmmmm....the most vaccinated, medicated people on Earth and some of the sickest? Could there be a connection?

Just more coincidence I'm sure. "Ask your doctor if....is right for you!"

What we need to do is to call Thomas Verstraeten and have him go over the numbers. I guarantee that all our health problems will disappear! Verstraeten made any link between vaccines and autism go away and he'll do the same for these health concerns!
