CDC Director on Continuing Drop in U.S. Life Expectancy

Atlanta, GA...“The latest CDC data show that the U.S. life expectancy has declined over the past few years. Tragically, this troubling trend is largely driven by deaths from drug overdose and suicide. Life expectancy gives us a snapshot of the Nation’s overall health and these sobering statistics are a wakeup call that we are losing too many Americans, too early and too often, to conditions that are preventable. CDC is committed to putting science into action to protect U.S. health, but we must all work together to reverse this trend and help ensure that all Americans live longer and healthier lives.” — Robert R. Redfield, M.D., CDC Director

    Arsehole Ha Ha guy.

    US health care nothing to be proud of.
    The for profit US system is mainly to blame.
    All of the countries have a health care for all government managed system.

    The Commonwealth Fund focused on care process, access, administrative efficiency, equity and health care outcomes, studying 72 indicators within those fields. The 11 countries analyzed were Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States. In addition to ranking last or close to last in access, administrative efficiency, equity and health care outcomes, the U.S. was found to spend the most money on health care.

    The U.S. rated especially poor in equality of coverage. The report found that 44 percent of low-income Americans have trouble gaining access to coverage compared with 26 percent of high-income Americans. The numbers for the U.K. are 7 percent and 4 percent, respectively. Not unrelated, the U.K.’s National Health Service was deemed the best health care system, just as it was in 2014. “In contrast to the U.S., over the last decade the U.K. saw a larger decline in mortality amenable to health care than the other countries studied,” the report reads.

    Though the U.S. did rank fifth in care process, which includes prevention, safe care, coordination and patient engagement, its overall score was easily the worst of the 11 nations.

      Lower Drug Pricing Possiable
      Posted on: 2018-11-29 11:25:00   By: Anonymous
       
      Merkley’s bill is the latest serious Democratic policy proposal designed to bring down sky-high domestic spending on medications. The United States pays an average of over $1,200 per person on prescription drugs each year, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development ― by far the highest level of any nation in the world. This spending isn’t a result of greater access to more or better medical care. Despite this high spending, American life expectancy is consistently lower than in other countries that pay much lower prices for the same drugs.

        Looks like we can add Calaveras CAO Tim Lutz to this statistic, he's resigned. Friggin Calaveras County, totally unable to attract and hold on to any legitimate administrative staff. Of course I can't blame them, our supervisors, leadership are totally stupid clown children. Anyone out there want to rub elbows with our idiots?

          Since this report is based on statistics from 2016 and prior, we can deduce that people were largely driven to deaths from drug overdose and suicide by Obama's failed policies.

            It Is Obvious: The US Has A Two-Tiered Legal System- Anyone Who Opposes To The Democrat Deep State Cabal Is No Longer Protected By The Law:
            Today Americans are praying they are not on the wrong side of the law. The problem is the wrong side of the law is not based on the law but rather on which political party you are connected to.
            Tucker Carlson shared last night how the US now has a two-tiered legal system today. Those who are part of the corrupt establishment and everybody else.
            The $40 million tax payer funded criminal Mueller witch hunt continues in spite of its unconstitutionality and criminality. Mueller and his Deep State gangsters continue in their efforts to remove President Trump from the White House. At the same time these criminals protect the crooks from the Clinton and Obama administrations.
            Ordinary Americans are outraged as they watch the collusion from the Deep State’s friends in the media promoting the biggest criminal sham in history. The Mueller investigation continues while Americans’ lives are destroyed by this vicious and disgusting gang.
            Good honest Americans have had enough. We will not stand back and allow a gang of Democrat criminals destroy our country!
            President Trump – Please Do Something Now Before Democrats Drive This Country to Mass Violence and Lawlessness!

          Did you know that Mueller and the Republicans In Name Only and the Liberal Democrats have spent/wasted over $40 Million Dollars on this investigation that has turned up zero evidence to charge or even think of charging President Trump in any wrong doing. That is right $40 Million wasted on a witch hunt dog and pony show to distract everybody from more important issues our nation faces like Job Creation here at home, taking better care of our Veterans, securing our Borders and all Ports of Entry, our national Infrastructure and so much more.
          It is beyond time to vote out of all these Republicans In Name Only, Liberals, Progressives, Socialists, Marxists and Communist leaning Democrats out of all elected offices!

        The Liberal Democrats will give Crooked Hilary and all other crooked Liberal Democrats a free pass on all of their obvious criminal activities but if anybody else they have a screaming fit.
        This is the purest form of being a personified hypocrite you can get. This is why people need to wake up to the simple fact that the Liberal Democrats and their Socialist, Marxist, Progressive and Communist friends must be removed from all offices of government.
        Liars and thieves one and all. Every last one of them.

Let me tell you, if your 78 and healthy this is great news, and just because your 78 doesn't mean your feeling all that good, but in observing people just in this area, Including myself, I see way too many overweight, or obese people, many with alcohol and drug problems, and just plain worn out adults, either from work or poor life styles, so what is my point, you we're created to have life on this earth, and there is life after, living to be 78 is nothing compared to eternity, make good choices and 78 year's won't mean much in the Big picture of life!
