NHS Kills!

For those of you who still want the government to take over and provide health care, check out this report on Britain's National Health Service:

Doctors at Glasgow University found that between 1974 and 2003, a total of 462,000 people died in Scotland as a result of health service failings.


The study examined the number of deaths caused by a lack of "timely and effective health care".

The vast majority of people - around 250,000 - who died due to inadequate or delayed treatment were heart or stroke patients.

Another 7300 had cancer and slightly more than 2000 were pneumonia patients.

Nearly half a million people killed by the National Health Service -- just something to think about.
