Greatest healthcare in the world!!!!!!  (Yes, I know there are other factors as well.)

Life expectancy in parts of the U.S. is now lower than it was 30 years ago, falling by more than two years between 1980 and 2014 in some regions. This means many Americans now have a lower life expectancy than people living in Iraq, India and the Philippines.

The worst one is Oglala Lakota County, South Dakota, which is 94% Native American.

Number Three is Todd County, South Dakota. 86% Native.

Number Four, Sioux County, South Dakota. 85% Native.

Number Five, Buffalo County, South Dakota. 82% Native.

This isn't a very good representation of the USA as a whole. Natives have a whole slew of issues that dramatically reduce their life expectancy, including probably the highest rate of suicide among young adults compared to other ethnic groups.

One thing I just noticed was

Quote
The largest drop in life expectancy was seen in Owsley County, Kentucky, where it fell from 72.4 in 1980 to 70.2 in 201



Guess that is no surprise however.

More than half of the Owsley County’s population -- 52 percent -- received food stamps in 2011, the most recent yearly number available. The county, which in 2012 was 97.6 percent non-Hispanic white and had 4,722 residents, had a median household income of $19,344, well below the Kentucky median of $42,248 and the $52,762 figure nationally, U.S. census data shows. Roughly four in 10 residents live below the poverty line.

Hal Rogers, the Republican chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, represents the county and in winning his 16th term last year got 84 percent of its vote. His 5th congressional district in southeast Kentucky has the largest proportion of food stamp recipients among any held by a Republican, the data shows.

God bless people like Bernie Sanders who possess the patience to try and connect with communites that are represented by people who would utterly destroy them.

Something to also consider is that a lot of Americans have very unhealthy lifestyles when compared to some parts of the world.

Indeed

One significant factor in that is America's corporate friendly philosophies. In the U.S., government's focus is highly geared toward big business profitability. Even when it is at the expense of an informed and safeguarded public.

While we do like our greasy food and lack of exercise, this does show a problem.

If they quit molesting all their children, maybe the suicide rate of young NA's wouldn't be so high.

True; and if you cave invaders hadn't orchestrated systematic child rape in their communities via Church run kidnapping/ child rape schemes after mass murdering them and stealing their land in order to break their spirits and causes intergenerational dysfunction like you do everywhere on earth youve ever gone, this issue wouldn't exist. This is simply an extension of the genocide of Natives via trauma based social/cultural engineering.

Yeah it's interesting; everybody rapes Native Women more than usual especially factoring in the interracial rape is usually fairly uncommon.

Though NA's date out hardcore, more NA identified types date out than they do in.

So it's not that surprising, add in the alcoholism and there ya go.

Rape city.
