Health Stats... "United Nations International Health"

Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by Scataphagos, Nov 2, 2010.

  1. Just in case you have not seen these 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."

    SHIP HIM TO CANADA OR ENGLAND !

    He is "elderly" himself but be sure to remember his health insurance is
    different from yours as Congress has their own high-
    end coverage! He will never have to learn to accept "inconveniences"!!!

    AND THE WINNER IS VERY INTERESTING!

    The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked in the
    private business sector prior to their appointment to the
    cabinet. You know what the private business sector is... a real life
    business, not a government job. Here are the percentages.

    T. Roosevelt........ 38%

    Taft.....................40%

    Wilson ................52%

    Harding..................49%

    Coolidge.............. 48%

    Hoover................. 42%

    F. Roosevelt......... 50%

    Truman..................50%

    Eisenhower........... 57%

    Kennedy.............. 30%

    Johnson.................47%

    Nixon................... 53%

    Ford..................... 42%

    Carter.................. 32%

    Reagan...................56%

    GH Bush................. 51%

    Clinton ................. 39%

    GW Bush................ 55%

    And the winner of the Chicken Dinner is:


    Obama................ 8% !!!

    Yep! That's right! Only Eight Percent!!!...the least by far of the last
    19 presidents!! And these people are trying to tell our
    big corporations how to run their business? They know what's best for
    GM...Chrysler...Wall Street...and you and me?

    How can the president of a major nation and society...the one with the most
    successful economic system in w orld history...
    stand and talk about business when he's never worked for one?...or about
    jobs when he has never really had one??! And neither
    has 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers! They've spent most of
    their time in academia, government and/or non-profit
    jobs....or as "community organizers" when they should have been in an
    employment line.



    May want to pass this on, We will NEVER see it in the main street media.
     
  2. Its possible the sample size is wrong. That is to say, while almost everyone gets a diagnosis in Canada or the UK, the poor american who cant afford healthcare dosent even know what he is dying from.
     
  3. The following is very telling. GW Bush 55% which lead us into a ditch with deregulation and rampant pro-business welfare. Obama 8%, perhaps an over reaction to appearance of too much wall street dominance in government. Either way, it was the change voters wanted and Obama can't win if a propagandist wants to use that as data.

    BTW, isn't IBD editorial the same one that claimed Stephen Hawking was the beneficiary of American medical health care system and would not have survived elsewhere when he is in fact British?
    Yep, IBD editorial wrote "Hawking wouldn't have a chance in UK" when in fact Hawking has been British and Hawking credited UK's health care system for his survival.
