Comparing the UK UHCP to the US is idiotic. Even when going by per capita. Just look at the population difference. It is far easier to take care of 1 or 2 people than it is to take care of 30-40 people. Get my drift? There is also a difference in how healthy a lifestyle one has when compared to the other.

well that is why we have per capita comparison.. it eliminates the population issue....
But yes, there is a difference in lifestyle, that one is correct. But considering that the UK looks more like the US in lifestyle, than any European country then well.... Plus if you use this excuse then you will have to use the same excuse with in the US, and thereby saying we cant do any statistics for the US, state by state, because the New Yorkers eat different than those in New Orleans...
All it compares is amount of money spent per person on healthcare in said countries....
It is like comparing an orange grown in California with one from Florida.. it is an orange and there are costs involved, but are you saying that you cant compare them for some reason?
