We are really a young country in the grand scheme of things. I just did some research and learned that americans are not ranked very high for life expectancy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_life_expectancy . We spend the most money on healthcare http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_total_health_expenditure_(PPP)_per_capita . There is something wrong here. Notice Japan who has the longest life expectancy. They spend half of what we do on healthcare. This is how Japan’s healthcare works http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_care_system_in_Japan . WE HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO!!
