About this item
American life expectancy is three years less than that of people in France or Sweden. Scottish men live two years less than English men. Women in poor communities across Europe die ten years earlier than those in the richest.Health Divides looks at such staggering gaps and shows how they came to be—how a mix of social, environmental, and political factors have interacted and evolved over time until they have become quite literally toxic. Clare Bambra concludes by considering how similar health divides might develop in the future, and what steps we can take now to try to prevent them.
