Well they do have a superior healthcare system
He's giving his opinion based on his life experience and research, and you have a contrary opinion based upon your life experience and research. I think that's all fair game in a civil discussion. Houndoc could very easily post videos of Fauci or any other medical professional that disagrees with this Dr, and since you disagree with that, is it fair for him to ask you to compare your credentials to theirs?
As you are very quick to point out, just because a dr says it, doesn't necessarily make it true. I'm sure there are other Dr's and medical industry professionals that are on record saying something very contrary to the Dr in that video. I don't think it's an absolute...either one is right or the other. I think the truth lies somewhere in the middle, and we are able to use our background, experience, opinions, training, research, or wife's cousin's boyfriend's friend's opinion to make up our own conclusions. But no matter how much we believe in our own opinions here, none of us 'know', you know?
I'm not a Healthcare expert but I play one on the internet.
My son has Cystic Fibros which is a respiratory disease. I've done a fair bit of research on the subject as you'd imagine. Primary childrens is in the top 5 in the country for outcomes with CF. The US is the leader in the world for life expectancy for cf patients.
There have been a ton of innovative drugs for cf in the last 5 to 10 years, some basically cure the underlying cause of cf in some mutations, which is your body making defective cells. More than 1/3 of those drugs aren't available in Canada. I have yet to meet a Canadian I didn't like but I think we have the better health care system, at least for me and mine. Maybe they have a better shingles treatment.
I work with a guy from Canada....his Dad died a few years ago, from brain cancer. He waited a ridiculous amount of time to get his treatment due to their healthcare system. I mean, HE didn't wait, he tried to get help--but whatever the process is, he waited "in the queue" for something like 2 years then died. I don't know for sure if what he had was treatable originally, if he were able to get in quicker, or not....but still.
