The World Health Organization ranked the U.S.A.'s health status at number 37, behind...well... just about everybody. Ok, we're 37 out of the 193 countries ranked by WHO... but... aren't we supposed to be the richest country in the world? Shouldn't we be closer to the TOP?
Thanks to Francine Hardaway for bringing this great musical celebration of our "status" to my attention! Catchy tune, but you might wanna turn your sound down just a bit.
