Migrate to Australia: Australia's health SHINES

Migrate to Australia: Australia's health SHINES

Part of the reason why people invest in Australia is because of its excellent quality lifestyle.
My previous blog Why Invest in Australia ? EXCELLENT QUALITY OF LIFE talks about it.

Today on news.com.au, it is found that Australia has ranked best in the world for mortality and life expectancy rates.

Check this article below, 

BRITONS are among the unhealthiest people in Western Europe, says a UK study which has ranked Australia as the highest performer in two health categories. 
Using data collected for the Global Burden of Diseases project, international researchers analysed rates of sickness and death from 1990 to 2010. 
Australia ranked No. 1 for mortality rate and No. 1 for life expectancy compared with the US, Canada, the UK and the European Union. 
However, experts described the UK's results as "startling" and said Britain was failing to address underlying health risks in its population, including rising rates of high blood pressure, obesity and drug and alcohol abuse. 
"It's incredibly surprising," said Dr Christopher Murray, who studies health metrics at the University of Washington in Seattle and is the lead author of the latest report.
"We all think of the UK as having a great health system and as one of the most sophisticated medical research communities in the world." 
"Nobody would have really expected that the UK would be toward the bottom."
Murray and colleagues said there was virtually no change in the rate of premature deaths among British adults aged 20 to 54 but found a spike in deaths caused by drug and alcohol abuse for that age group. 
Cirrhosis, or liver disease often linked to alcohol consumption, has jumped by more than 65 per cent in Britain in the last two decades, prompting a recent government proposal to crack down on cheap drinks by setting minimum prices.
As in most Western nations, heart disease, stroke and cancer were the leading killers.
Heart disease remains Australia's biggest killer but it led to 32 per cent fewer deaths in 2010 than it did in 1990, the research found. 
Alzheimers, however, has rocketed up the rankings, jumping from 26th place as a cause of premature death in Australians in 1990 to ninth in 2010. 
Lung cancer has replaced stroke as Australia's second biggest killer, while road injury deaths have dropped 40 per cent. 
The research was paid for by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and published online in the UK journal Lancet.  Read more: http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/health-fitness/australian-health-shines-uks-slumps/story-fneuzlbd-1226591345911#ixzz2MjxUCrwI
 Dr Christopher Murray was incredibly surprise because people often think that UK has the greatest health care system and sophisticated medical research communities in the world. Nobody expected that UK will be at the bottom when it comes to healthcare.

Among the reason why UK's health is going down is because of failure to identify health risk among the population including, high blood pressure, obesity, drug and alcohol abuse.

With the advance technology and modern healthcare system, Australia's health shine today.

So here's an overview of Australia's health today.
