We have heard it said that the American health care system is the best in the world. We do know for sure that it is the most expensive in the world but it seems it is not the best or at least Americans don't top the list as the healthiest people in the world. Statistics from the CIA World Fact Book lists the United States at 50th for life expectancy, behind such countries as Japan, Canada, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Israel, Spain, Norway, Germany pretty much all of Europe. We also rank 44th on infant mortality behind such countries as Cuba, the European Union, Italy, Greece, Ireland, Canada, U.K., New Zealand, Netherlands, Austria, Denmark, South Korea, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Czech Republic, Norway, Finland, Hong Kong, Japan, Sweden and more.
