UK has higher early death rate than many rich nations
People in the UK have a higher risk of early death than those in many other wealthy countries, a study shows, BBC reported.
While deaths before the age of 60 in the UK have nearly halved in the past 40 years, the rate for women remains similar to Slovenia's and Albania's.
Experts said the large inequality gap was to blame for the findings, which were reported in the Lancet journal.
Globally, men in Iceland and women in Cyprus had the lowest risk, the Washington University-led team found.
