Greece and Cyprus amongst the top 20 of the World’s Healthiest Countries of 2017

04/09/2017
Also this year Bloomberg published the ranking of the 50 healthiest countries in the world and results are quite surprising.

The Bloomberg Global Health Index is calculated taking into account variables such as life expectancy, causes of death, incidence of high blood pressure, high blood glucose, tobacco use, and physical inactivity. Other parameters taken into account are childhood malnutrition, mental health, vaccination coverage, greenhouse gas emissions.

More than 200 countries have been evaluated and 163 had enough data to be included in the final outcome.

Italy got the highest score and Iceland, Switzerland, Singapore and Australia complete the list of the top 5.

The U.S. placed 34th with a health index negatively impacted by the high prevalence of overweight people.
