What's killing America? U.S. ranks 28th in life expectancy (lower than Chile and Greece) while it pays the MOST for health care

A new survey on health care is revealing that you may not be getting what you pay for if you check into a U.S. hospital.

The U.S. healthcare system is more effective at delivering high costs than quality care than other developed nations, according to the study, conducted by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, or OECD.

It found first-rate treatment for cancer but insufficient primary care for other ailments.

The study said Americans pay more than $7,900 per person for healthcare each year – far more than any other OECD country – but still die earlier than their peers in the industrialized world.

Do the stats take into account car wrecks and Saturday night shootings and Big Mac attacks? That'll lower life expectancy a tad right there.

I actually think it's our entire lifestyle - we work more than people from any other nation, including Japan.

Take out the 20,000 shot to death and the 50,000 killed in their cars and you have a different story.

Medicine here is just another big money game. The health part is just there so it is not totally a lie and crime.

Maybe the gunshots, I don't see how the car accidents would change anything. They have those everywhere.

Your infant mortality rate which is also used as a health indicator, is the highest of all the industrial nations.

We pride ourselves in killing children, both physically and psychologically.
