  1. Ugh… for the United States, the gap between counties with highest and lowest life expectancy is 20.1 years. Most depressing and surprising at first: South and North Dakota had the worst counties. Reason: The number of Native American reservations.

    1. That’s shocking isn’t it. For us the shock is that there should be a gap. Even the very rich usually do not have private health care. We all use the same services. It’s probably down to better food and less stress that some groups live longer than others. Everyone loves and appreciates our National Health Service- which is a service that is usual in European nations anyway. So we need to look at other issues and it will be lower income that causes the disparity.
