Posted: Updated:

Despite spending more than any other country on Earth, the United States is lagging in health care.

That's all according to a study published in the journal of the American Medical Association.

It finds that the health of Americas is mediocre when compared to places like Britain, Canada, Germany and New Zealand.

In fact, the U.S. came in dead last in terms of life expectancy.

The top risks that lead to this country's poor health are diet, tobacco, obesity and high blood pressure.
