Study: Middle Aged British Healthier Than Americans
Has anybody seen this? I tried to make sure no one has made a thread yet, so if there already is, sorry.
An analysis of health surveys showed the prevalence of diabetes and cancer were nearly twice as high among white American 55- to 64-year-olds than British in that age group.
Heart disease was 50 percent more common in the United States than in Britain, and rates of stroke, high blood pressure and lung disease were more common among middle-aged Americans as well.

I would guess the difference is down to diet, exercise (much harder to live without some walking every day in the UK) and socialised medicine (those people minded to get a health problem checked don't have to worry about paying for treatment or the visit to the doctor). ."Tell me what you find in your Bible, and I will tell you what sort of man you are" - Oscar Pfister
