Subject: RE: BS: Nationalized Healthcare, good? bad?
While early treatment can save individual patients money, research shows that the benefits don't outweigh the costs of the additional screening procedures. But if it saves your life...

Of course, if you die sooner I suppose that's likely to come a lot cheaper than if you live and continue to require medical treatment from time to time. Infant mortality is the biggest healthcare moneysaver there is.
