A lot of that has to do with diet: a Mediterranean diet as in Spain & Italy, a lot of fish as in Iceland, Japan and Norway, etc.

In America we have a health-care industry that ignores diet in favor of prescribing medications, and a food processing industry that is little concerned with long-term health issues.

In this country “health” isn’t an accomplishment, it’s a product. It’s your god-given right to live however you want and then have the medicos fix you all up. At enormous expense. At everybody’s expense. And like any product, if you or your insurance company can’t afford it, you don’t deserve it. Because freedom.
