Americans face a number of serious health issues, and epidemiologists say the problems are getting worse. Diabetes and obesity are on the rise, access to medical care is threatened by skyrocketing costs, women's health research is underfunded and hundreds of unnecessary deaths occur annually as a result of a shortage of nurses and donated organs. Making matters worse, most Americans don't exercise or eat properly. Even the health conscious are often confused over the conflicting opinions of medical officials. The issues explored in this collection of reports from The CQ Researcher en espanol are among the most perplexing and divisive facing Americans and those charged with ensuring public health.
