Spain is the healthiest country in the world

Fecha: 2019-02-25

This is evident from the Bloomberg 2019 Healthiest Country Index, for which health in 169 countries was scrutinized.

The Bloomberg 2019 Healthiest Country Index today published the results of a study in which they looked at the health in 169 countries. Two years ago Italy was still number one, but that country now has to do it with a second place. The top five was completed by Iceland, Japan and Switzerland.

In particular, the health care factor was rated as good by the researchers. The fact that health care scores well in Spain is because public health care in Spain is performed by good, specialized doctors and nurses. Moreover, in Spain the number of patients who die of cardiovascular disease and cancer has decreased.

But the famous Mediterranean diet is also mentioned in the study as one of the reasons that Spain may call itself the healthiest country. Earlier, a study by the University of Navarre showed that people who eat a lot of extra virgin olive oil and nuts are less likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease than people who have a diet with reduced fat.

Many Spaniards consider Galician cuisine as one of the purest. Here you will find 3 of our recommendations to inspire you and prepare you for a holiday in this amazing part of Spain.
