Interesting Statistics

A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very   
interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations   
International Health Organization.
Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years   
after diagnosis:
U.S.                 65%
England           46%
Canada            42%

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

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

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

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

Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in   
"excellent health":
U.S.                 12%
England           2%
Canada            6%

I don't know about you, but I don't want "Universal Healthcare"   
comparable to   England    or   Canada.
Moreover, it was Sen. Harry Reid who said,
"Elderly Americans must learn to accept the inconveniences of old age."
