Wow, so our American government actually DOESN'T want its own citizens to be in optimal physical and mental health & fitness?
Why is that? Wouldn't wellness increase efficiency and ultimately, GDP?

So what does the government have to to with that? Do they force the people to eat unhealty und to be lazy couch potatoes. At the end of the day you have to decide what you eat. Most of the food they sell in american grocery stores is poison, but tastes damn good!

Americans spend twice as much as residents of other developed countries on healthcare, but get lower quality, less efficiency and have the least equitable system, according to a report released on Wednesday. The United States ranked last when compared to six other countries -- Britain, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand, the Commonwealth Fund report found. "As an American it just bothers me that with all of our know-how, all of our wealth, that we are not assuring that people who need healthcare can get it," Commonwealth Fund president Karen Davis told reporters in a telephone briefing.
