Default Spain has been crowned the healthiest country in the world

Cribbed from the MailOnLine:

"The Bloomberg Healthiest Country Index, which ranks 169 countries, moved Spain to the top spot to overtake Italy.

Experts suggest the Mediterranean diet, which is known to be good for the heart and circulation, could play a role in Spaniards' good health.*

Britain was placed 19th, while the US only made it to 35th – Australia was the only English-speaking country to make it into the top 10, ranking seventh.

Countries' life expectancies, smoking rates and obesity were all taken into account by the rankings, as well as access to clean water.

And Spain officially has the European Union's longest life expectancy at birth, and ranks third globally – behind Japan and Switzerland, Bloomberg reported.

A study led by the University of Navarra, in Spain, said a 'Mediterranean diet, supplemented with extra-virgin olive oil or nuts, had a lower rate of major cardiovascular events than those assigned to a reduced-fat diet'."

Hi All,
Very interesting reading this report. Am holidaying in Valencia at the moment for the Fallas festival, then back in PP in June. I take on board the healthy Mediterranean diet, but can’t believe how many people smoke over here!!!.. Much more so than the islands, and the UK.

On that basis, I find it strange that Spain came top of the league..
