WaPo Analysis: “Americans lose three times as many years of life to infectious diseases as the average OECD country and loses twice as many years to metabolic diseases. There are some categories in which America used to lose fewer years of life than other countries back a few decades ago. But, ever since the 1980s, that hasn’t happened.”
