Why do young women keep dying after taking ecstasy?
UK women have worse death rate than Albanians
British women are among the most at risk in Europe of dying prematurely, according to figures published today...
Premature death rates among women in Britain are on a par with those in Slovenia and Albania, a study has shown.
In fact, we are more likely to die early inBritainthan in virtually every other western European country – and have been on adownward spiralover the past 40 years, with British women falling from15th to 20thplace in a league of 22.
The researchers at the University of Washington in Seattle admit they are unclear as to why UK women are slipping behind. Part of the explanation may lie in poorer survival rates fromheart diseaseandcancerand lack of access tolife-saving drugsand treatments.
Other research showed British women aredying in pregnancy and birthat the same rate as two decades ago, and at the same rate as women in Albania and Poland.
Men in the UK fare better, according to the worldwide analysis of mortality between 1970 and 2010. Their risk of dying before the age of 60 is typical of that for western Europe.
In the study, scientists calculated the chances of people who have just turned 15 dying before their 60th birthday, using census data and death records. The five countries with the lowest death rates for men and women today wereIceland, Sweden, Malta, the Netherlands and Switzerland.
Mark Wallace of the TaxPayers’ Alliance said: ‘It is alarming that Britain is sliding down these league tables so swiftly compared with other European countries. Medical science is constantly improving but other countries seem to be taking better advantage ofnew technologythan us.
