Guess: Longer life expentancy in Israel or United States?

Really. Guess.
What do you think?

Life expentancy in Israel is 79.4 years - 14th in the world.
Life expentancy in the US is 77.1 years. (This particular stat. source.)

Overal health score of Israel is 16th in the world and the US is 17th.

I learned about this from Ma'ariv International.

You can read a PDF version of the entire report (except USA state cited elsewhere) here.

Israel also ranked 29th in the mortality rate of children under 5. Israel’s population growth ranked 34th at 3.9% per year with a birthrate of 2.77.

Go Israel!!
