Incidences of most medical conditions is lower in those other countries, because prevention
is really encouraged. Also, in France, Drs get paid by how WELL their patients are. If they can get most of their patients to control diabetes, lower cholesterol, quit smoking, lose weight, etc., they get bonuses. The argument from the doctors standpoint is they won't get paid anything. However one Dr they interviewed lived in a million dollar home, drove a luxury car and had no debt.
