    England 'healthier than the US

    HhmmI wonder why this is?

    <People living in England enjoy better health than Americans, despite less investment in healthcare, research published in the US has revealed.>


    <Despite the greater use of health care technology in the US, Americans receive less preventive health care than their English counterparts.>

    <They have fewer physician consultations per year. >

    < Public health experts suggested more generous holiday entitlements and more favourable working conditions in the UK might also play a part.>

    BBC News - England &#039;healthier than the US&#039;

    Different cultures, different lifestyles. IE I don't really care what they do in England.

    It would be nice to have a few more useful years above ground though.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    If you compare the calories and fats in a McDonalds / KFC / Burger King type meal and that of a similar sized fish and chips type meal you may find fish and chips is healthier. Not saying it's a health food - just less bad for you.

    It's the fried Mars Bar you can buy in many Scottish fish and chips shops that are bad for you but the thread is about England's health and not Scotland's...
