ABSTRACT
The author comments on the issue of restructuring the U.S. medical system to improve the health of the population. He believes that restructuring the country's healthcare system will not necessarily affect the health of U.S. citizens, especially when it comes to health maintenance. The author criticizes a claim by filmmaker Michael Moore regarding the significance of the healthcare system to the perception that the average Cuban is healthier than the average U.S. citizen.
