Americans have bigger issues with cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity than in other rich nations, a new study shows. And more than a third of our children are overweight or obese.

From American Medical News

The health disadvantage in the U.S. exists at nearly all ages, from birth to age 75, the panel said. Even Americans who have a college education and medical insurance and who follow healthy behaviors have poorer health compared with their counterparts in other wealthy countries.

Poor health isn’t just the obesity problem, but also a large number of uninsured and a shortage of doctors, and environmental factors like cities designed for driving rather than walking.

The other countries in the research were Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
