DOCTORS ARE THEIR OWN WORST PATIENT<quoted text>
Once again, and as before: Comparing nations with disparate government, laws, and cultures is akin to comparing a stone to a bird.
Statistics have no bearing for anything other than trends.

Denial (also called abnegation) is a defense mechanism postulated by Sigmund Freud, in which a person is faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept and rejects it instead, insisting that it is not true despite what may be overwhelming evidence. The subject may use:
simple denial: deny the reality of the unpleasant fact altogether
minimisation: admit the fact but deny its seriousness (a combination of denial and rationalization)
projection: admit both the fact and seriousness but deny responsibility by blaming somebody or something else
