Cystic fibrosis has no cure. Over the past few decades, though, we have developed medications, diets and treatments for depredations of the disease. Care has improved so much that people with cystic fibrosis are living on average into their 40s in the United States. In Canada, however, they are living into their 50s.
"Why Cystic Fibrosis Patients in Canada Outlive Those in the U.S." is from the March 20, 2017 Health section of The New York Times. It was written by Aaron E. Carroll and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.
