The Healthcare crises

Healthcare costs are rising at an unsustainable rate.

InHealthcare03 America they are already 17.9% of GDP. The other rich economies are on the same trajectory. 

Yet even with their sophisticated healthcare systems, it is these same countries whose hospitals were overwhelmed during the Covid-19 pandemic. The data show us why. 

The countries that suffered the highest mortality rates are those with the highest obesity rates. Conversely, Vietnam, the country with the lowest obesity rate also has one of the lowest Covid-19 mortality rates. 

Of the people infected, 33% are asymptomatic. Many of the world’s leading athletes have had Covid-19: Novak Djokovic, Lewis Hamilton, Adam Yates, Egan Bernal. None needed medical treatment. All are still dominating their sports. 

A physically active life-style is the solution to the healthcare crises.
