Some useful info but too long and too US specific

This was frustrating as had to wade through a lot of irrelevant and excessively detailed info to get the essential message. Also, it related to healthcare in the US. All this series of lectures are US based and some will travel better than others. This guy's voice was pretty grating to my ear too. Having said that, it has made me more determined to focus on better diet and more exercise.
