Capitalist societies pride themselves on being scientific when dealing with health problems. However, according to research in 29 capitalist countries including Yankeedom, Western and Eastern Europe, the decrease in life-span has declined by 1 to 2 1/2 years. In Western Europe it is the worst since 1939-1945 during and after World War II. In Eastern Europe it is the worst it’s been since the fall of the Soviet Union. In the US, life expectancy is the worst it’s been since the Great Depression.
