It breaks my heart, too.

I'd say so, as I've seen most regions of the Earth represented in the list.

Perhaps both. Different health system, at least. It saddens me to know that the U.S. system is perhaps most likely to be singled out in this way. It's a system with unequal distribution of health care. Tens of millions of its citizens (and the immigrants that fuel the economy) without insurance.....and even for those with insurance, facing cost management as the primary consideration of treatment, rather than well-being. I read one analysis of the system's efficiency that concluded that the costs of administration (~25% of total cash flow; includes profit to investors) could completely cover the costs of full medical care for all Americans, but that 30,000,000 people would be out of work.

I think you do.
