A study was done by the CDC, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that showed that 44,786 people suffered deaths because of a lack of health coverage. Factors that contributed to these deaths were a obesity, cigarette smoking, and excess drinking. These people more than likely never had a physical and never had a physician educate them and inform them when they were not taking care of their bodies. Low cost health insurance coverage is very easy to get but since the media is so blanketed with advertising from large scale corporations, it is incredibly difficult to find these companies.
An increasing number of Americans are becoming either underinsured or have no insurance and this is contributing to excess deaths in our country. A study put out by Harvard Medical School and Cambridge health alliance show that those who were under 65 had a 40% increase in death against those who were carrying health Coverage.
‘Excess deaths’ have been shown higher for males, who experienced a 37% rise in premature deaths due to poor health habits that would have been caught by a physician.
Low cost health insurance coverage is very easy to get but still many Americans remain uninsured. According to a professor at the University of Harvard, one American will die every 27 minutes due to a lack of health coverage. This is estimated to be a very conservative figure and this study was done in 2008.
In 2009, one American will die every 13 minutes due to a lack of health insurance. Your health is nothing to play with, especially low cost health insurance coverage is available.
