2. No comparison data from other countries.

So according to the data it is the least healthy... oh and also the most... erm...
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

To call the Untied States the least healthy country is absurd. See Nigeria, China, Cuba, Peru, etc.

And a country's healthiness should be rated based on life expectancy, because health problems vary from country to country. To focus only on weight and cardiovascular disease is to handpick data.

It comes in far lower than it should, but it's hardly the unhealthist.

The top two are the best because of their proficiency in biology and chemistry (China -- best in the world, in fact) and their diets (Japan), not their health care system.

As for the third (Switzerland): "Healthcare in Switzerland is regulated by the Federal Health Insurance Act of 1994. Health insurance is compulsory for all persons residing in Switzerland (within three months of taking up residence or being born in the country)." -- http://en.wikipedia.org...

So do we actually believe the statistics that come out of all countries? Do you believe what China says? In 1973 they stopped true numbers of suicide statistics because the numbers were climbing at remarkable rates. Do you believe the statistics that come from counties like Venezuela, Iran, North Korea, Nicaragua, etc.? Do we even believe our own statistics that were most likely assembled by people with a vested interest in their outcome? In such things, i would prefer anecdotal evidence to that which comes from "official sources".
