Labour's Health Policy

Brilliant investigative reporting by the Herald has uncovered Labour's yet to be announced health policy. Hidden away in a piece on cancer rates we find that NZ has among the worst rates in the world for cancer in men and not quite as worsest rates for wimmin. (Hell, I hope they don't bring in mammogram style tests for prostate) But here is the killer diller.

Male cancer rates are higher only in the United States and Hungary. The countries with the lowest rates are Niger, Gambia and the Congo.

Now I understand why Dominatix and Economix have turned us into a basket case economy. It's to cure the bloody cancer!!

Niger, Gambia and Congo have a high lead poisoning rate (usually from bullets) so the medical condition known as death sets in before full blown cancer develops.

They are also hemorrhaging from foreign debt.

Let's hope we don't come down with similar ailments.

Can you pass the bananas please.

Old age works for me. Helenitis does not.

Hmmm Helenitis. I'm not sure if i've said this already on Sir Humphreys, but its scandalous a newspaper hasn't done a major expose on our public health system.

Old age works for me. - And in that statement, gentlemen, is one of the reasons we are seeing more cancer. As nations life expectancy increases, so does their cancer rate because lots of other factors that would kill you off in less developed countries are less likely to kill you. The link referred to at the bottom of the Herald article you mentioned had more info
