U.S. Ranks Last Out of 19 Countries in Preventable Deaths

Researchers in London reported that the U.S. had dropped from 15th place to 19th in deaths that could have been prevented by access to effective medical care. 47 million U.S. citizens do not have health insurance. And still, the U.S. health care system spends $7026 for every person in the country, by far the highest in the world. Our system is dominated by unnecessary surgery and expensive, dangerous drugs. We know that there is a better way. To find an integrative medicine doctor, visit the International College of Integrative Medicine website.
