Healthcare debate- No offense intended


Recommended Posts

Right.

Let's talk more about how capitalism is anti-racist.

Taking the average of black male and female mortality (an overestimate because the female rate is lower and there are more women than men), US black mortality rate is 940/100k. 300,000 obesity deaths occur each year, for a national rate of over

317 million US population/300,000 deaths/100k = at least 1000 obesity deaths per 100k population.

The mortality rate in the highest life expectancy OECD country, Switzerland, is at least 630/100k.

The black obesity rate is 49.5%, compared to 35.7% nationally.

49.5% / 35.7% = 1.38

The black obesity rate is 1.38 times the national average. This comes out to an obesity mortality rate of at least 1000*1.38 = 1380/100k.

The Swiss obesity rate for the overall population is at most 31%.

The Swiss obesity rate is at most 31% / 49.5% = 63% of the black rate.

This means there is an 100% - 63% = 27% obesity mortality gap.

27% * 1380/100k black obesity mortality rate = At least 372/100k mortality gap between African-Americans and Swiss from obesity alone.

Given a black mortality rate of 940/100k,

940 - 372 = 568/100k black mortality if obesity rates were the same as in Switzerland.

Given that the mortality rate in Switzerland is at least 630/100k, the entirety of the mortality gap between African-Americans and the healthiest country in Europe can be explained by obesity, in fact subtracting out obesity black Americans have better health outcomes than Swiss.

This indicates that African-Americans receive better healthcare than the healthiest country in Europe, and their higher mortality rate is entirely due to obesity. In conclusion, public healthcare is better at giving you failAIDS than preventing it.

Let me repost without pics.
