    I know eh? People are living so much longer and thinking up stupid stuff to do.


    - nevermind - I didn't notice the dates on the posts

    However, it's good that they scraped the fat tax.

Ever since the government got involved with medicare and medicaid and tax benefits for buying health insurance through your employer resulted in completely destroying the industry.
      Funny that one of the most expensive, least coverage heathcares systems that does not involve the gov directly.

        It's amazing how the American government DOES affect the cost of healthcare all across the world, not least via the FDA, as many countries follow FDA approval and other such diktats.

          While everyone is getting their knickers in a knot, I'd like to point out that, in fact, Denmark is REMOVING the saturated fat tax that has been in limited existence for the past year. I knew it was posted on the BBC earlier.

            Man, you guys are brave. I wouldn't put one red cent into Chinese stocks. Unless I played them like penny stocks. Which I don't do, so...

            Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

                  Are you saying that Denmark is divided into two totally separate unrelated groups- "universal socialist healthcare systemists) and tax payers? Yes, it sounds horrible. I am afraid of some civil war there - tax payers against patients.
