Sick Around the World

Loading...
"Four in five Americans say the U.S. health-care system needs "fundamental" change. Can the U.S. learn anything from the rest of the world about how to run a health-care system, or are these nations so culturally different from us that their solutions would simply not be acceptable to Americans? FRONTLINE correspondent T.R. Reid examines first-hand the health-care systems of other advanced capitalist democracies -- UK, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, and Taiwan -- to see what tried and tested ideas might help us reform our broken health-care system."--Frontline web site.

Coke's Water Bomb

Loading...
"On a British sitcom, two characters bottled tap water and sold it as Peckham Spring Water. More recently, Coca-Cola launched its purified-water lifestyle drink, Dasani, in the U.K. The connection was not overlooked. This program tracks Dasani's progressive PR nightmare in Britain -- first as newspapers screamed "Coke Sells Tap Water for 95p," and then as Coca-Cola recalled 500,000 bottles due to potentially carcinogenic contamination at their factory. It also considers an even larger problem as worldwide Coke sales continue to flatten: without Dasani, the soft drink giant has no bottled water product for the lucrative European market." -- Container.
