1 post / 0 new

A new study in the British medical Journal Lancet finds that men in Iceland and women in Cyprus have the lowest risk of dying worldwide. And where is America? 49th for women and 45th for men behind Peru, Chile and Libya. Our screwed up - but hugely profitable for a few guys like Stephen J.
