In fact in the US case it’s not even obesity, or indeed their greater pre-existing disease burden, that is doing most of the work in dragging their life expectancy down; it’s accidental and violent deaths. It is tragic that the US is so dangerous, but it’s not the fault of the healthcare system; indeed, it’s an extra burden that US healthcare spending must bear. Just simply normalising for violent and accidental death puts the USA right to the top of the life expectancy rankings.That makes it mostly white man's burden, like in Chicago the tax payers pays something like $300 million a year policing and curing black gunfighters. Since the NAACP has not fixed the problem, why not tax them?
