Wow, amazing how the red counties that have increasing mortality rates for women are the same red counties voting for Republicans in 2012!

No wonder women are voting for Democrats in such large numbers.  heh

This map, via health researcher Bill Gardner, shows the change in mortality rate for females in each county in the United States between 1992 and 2006. In 43 percent of counties — all those in red — mortality rates are rising:


“Although we are accustomed to seeing varying rates of mortality reduction in states and nations,” Kindig and Cheng write, “it is striking and discouraging to find female mortality rates on the rise in 42.8 percent of US counties, despite increasing medical care expenditures and public health efforts.”

“Female mortality rates were not predicted by any of the medical care factors,” they write.

What could predict worsening mortality rates, however, were socioeconomic factors.

“Many people believe that medical care and individual behaviors such as exercise, diet, and smoking are the primary reasons for declines in health,” the authors write. “We did find significant associations between mortality rates and some of these factors, such as smoking rates for both sexes. But socioeconomic factors such as the percentage of a county’s population with a college education and the rate of children living in poverty had equally strong or stronger relationships to fluctuations in mortality rates.”

Not too surprising that posters here are uninterested in the fact that mortality rates for American women are increasing in 42% of the nations counties.

Mostly women are uniterested in gun related issues and tend to hang with guys who don't need that artificial extension for their johnsons.  LOL

Actually women do care.

A simple fact that Mitt fairly could not understand and then wondered why he lost.

The second amendment is a "right" not a privilege which extends to everyone. If you choose not to exercise yours that's fine. But your constant attacks and ridiculing of those who do appreciate their rights, is just un American.

Well, I can give you a personal anecdote, don't know what it will be worth, but here it is.

In my case I went directly from "young whippersnapper" to "old curmudgeon",  and I didn't even know it, but people around me seemed to pick up on it right away.

Kinda like how butterflys just show up one day, ya know??

Actually, I have been thinking about starting a new religion, and just living forever.

Maybe start a trend, neh??

All those things that keep popping up as the "leading cause of death" for Americans don't sound very attractive to  me, so just skip that part and go directly to life everlasting.

The true American dream!!   :p
