Lack of health care led to 17,000 US child deaths

Lack of adequate health care may have contributed to the deaths of some 17,000 US children over the past two decades, according to a study released by the Johns Hopkins Children's Center.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One measure of any society is how it takes care - or doesn't take care - of its most fragile, and voiceless parts of its population.

That would be its children and its elderly medically fragile.

That the US is losing 850 kids every year due to lack of some kind of basic insurance is extremely telling, and should be extremely embarrassing for a country which likes to think of itself as "the leader of the free world."
