http://www.coyoteblog.com/coyote_blog/2009/08/us-medicine-be...Supporters of government medicine often quote a statistic that shows life expectancy in the US lower than most European nations with government-run health systems. But what they never mention is that this ranking is mainly due to lifestyle and social factors that have nothing to do with health care. Removing just two factors - death from accidents (mainly car crashes) and murders - vaults the US to the top of the list._____________________The corrected numbers can be found at the link, as can the correction of other falsehoods perpetrated by those who want government to run our lives.--fleg
