To Explain Longevity Gap, Look Past Health System

  1. Good article in the New York Times
    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/22/science/22tier.html?_r=1&ref=science

    "But a prominent researcher, Samuel H. Preston, has taken a closer look at the growing body of international data, and he finds no evidence that America’s health care system is to blame for the longevity gap between it and other industrialized countries.
