"CBO did not state that all other industrialized countries are less likely to include very premature birth in their infant mortality statistics and the CBO did not state that the differences in the infant mortality statistics are solely due to the differences in reporting. So, while some statistical reports from some nations may not be completely comparable to those from the United States the CBO is not saying that all are not completely comparable."Thank you for pointing that out.
I have found many have an over inflated sense of national pride that only the US has it's act together. Though I find is annoying I generally shrug it off. (For example the "freedom fry" fiasco.)
Thank you Tom,
The last thing one needs when having health problems is to worry how to pay for the treatment or even to make an appointment. Stress is not conducive to healing.A friend, a widow, spent all their retirement saving on her husband's health problems. They own a nice house so very little help was available.
