Lack of Health Insurance Kills Thousands of Americans Each Year
A new report on CNN.com paints an eerie picture of what itís like to live in America without a health care plan. The report by Madison Park of CNN.com points to research just releases in the American Journal of Public Health which estimates that 45,000 deaths per year in the United States are associated with the lack of health insurance.

The report on health care examined Americans who died from preventable and treatable diseases because they did not have health insurance. One man highlighted in the report died of a ruptured Appendix at just 45 years old when he chose not to seek treatment for his symptoms due to a lack of health care coverage.
The information released by Journal of Public Health coincides with Obamaís controversial health care debate. Obama has been battling democrats and republicans in congress over his idea to offer standardized and government controlled health care to those who lack it.
Americans have been split over the idea of creating a government controlled health care reform and many have taken to the Internet to learn the facts and voice their opinion. To help consumers understand and make sense of government health care initiatives, a new website has been created for public use. The website is designed to allow consumers to discuss national and local healthcare issues by way of virtual town hall style meetings.
Consumers who would like to share their thoughts and concerns over the current state of health care coverage for Americans are encouraged to speak up at http://www.governmenthealthcarefacts.com/
Whether Americans are for or against government healthcare reform, one thing they can all agree on is that change must come and it must come fast.
