U K Doctors Have Answer for Medical Cost

Doctors are calling for NHS treatment to be withheld from patients who are too old or who lead unhealthy lives.

Don't treat the old and unhealthy, say doctors - Telegraph

This might catch on. I can picture it now:

chest pain? sorry, you are too old
bleeding? sorry, you are too fat

Damn, life is confusing.
When I was sixteen I needed a false ID to buy a 6 pack.
Now you tell me I need a false ID that makes me younger so I can get some viagra a blood transfusion. :confused:
