When people talk about their fears of a nationalized health care system letting older patients die because it isn't cost effective to cure them, this example from the NHS in the UK is exactly what they are talking about. An estimated 14,000 deaths a year from lack of treatment because medical professionals decided they were too old! You'd think folks in their sixties and seventies would get routine medical treatment for curable diseases like a bladder tumor, but instead they just get told it is their time to die and are sent home. Unbelievable.
