A Partial Explanation

CHICAGO -- A new study of 14 countries finds that the United States has the highest rate of mental illnesses, including anxiety disorders and depression.

Researchers from Harvard Medical School in Boston and the World Health Organization found that such illnesses are common and undertreated in many of the countries. The study results appear in Wednesday's issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The countries surveyed from 2001-2003 included Colombia, Mexico, United States, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Ukraine, Lebanon, Nigeria, Japan, and China. Mental illness rates ranged from more than 26 percent of people in the United States to a little over 8 percent of people in Italy.

U.S. Tops In Mental Illness Rates, Study Finds

So, if 26% are "mentally ill", does that mean the other 17% or so who support Bush* are just morons??

Just asking...
