    Default Cuba is among the healthiest Nations in the World

    According to the experts, a big number of doctors cannot guarantee the population health, however, in Cuba it contributes to efficiency of measures on disease prevention. Thousands of Cuban doctors annually go abroad on study tours. Due to professionalism and the state support of healthcare Cuba achieves results even Europe may be envious of.

    On the other hand, the focus on prevention and early diagnosis leads to the lack of drugs in the country. Besides, it is expected that openness of the Cuban society and increase in purchasing capacity of big layers of population shall stimulate the "import" of European and American diseases connected with dieting and food.

    Cuban life expectancy is 68.4 and US is 70. What is the point?

    The point is US achieves it by having people take 10 pills per day and Cubans don't!

    The point was probably that we might learn something from the Cubans. Besides doing health care well, they also produce great wrestlers, weightlifters, baseball players, and musicians. Just how do they do it?

    European and American diseases connected with dieting and food.

    OK, we have bad habits and don't personally guard our health very well. This says nothing about health care only healthy eating or exercising habits. Was this suppose to be a surprise?

    This portion of the article claims Communist food and dieting habits are healthier than capitalist ones.
