Which are the world’s healthiest countries….and why?

OkinawaPeopleWhich are the world’s healthiest countries?

Well, don’t include the U.S. among them.

We are too fat, too inactive, eat too much junk and processed GMO food, and take too many dangerous prescription medicines to qualify for membership in countries who walk more, celebrate meals prepared lovingly from whole foods, and use prescriptions only as a last resort.

The latest worldwide surveys place us at around 37th, depending on factors used by analysts… and falling every year. Thirty or 40 years ago we were at or near the top.

Think about what changed.

European nations such as France, Italy, Greece, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Spain, Andorra (between France and Spain) now dominate the good food and activity habits that maintain superior health, though food choices differ greatly.

But other countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Japan, Okinawa (poor citizens) and Monaco… (very rich citizens who hire topnotch chefs to provide healthy foods), also enjoy good health.

Okinawa is home to one of the world’s largest populations of healthy centenarians!

Ironically, Kuwait, a sidekick of the U.S. and U.S. foods, with nearly half the population obese, is also very (oil) rich… but at the bottom of the health and fitness list. That’s because instead of being devoted to good health, they sit back in indulgence, collect money, hire peasants from other countries to do the work, and pig out on American fast food.

This information is according to the New York Daily News, Business Insider and Huffington Post. The latest study was conducted in 2014 by Healthfitnessrevolution.com. Other figures are from 2012 and 2013.

Right at this time, behind the scenes, politicians are trying to glue together the biggest trade deal in world history—the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). But they ran into a roadblock.

Europeans like their traditional foods and farming. They don’t want any part of TTIP, whose U.S. ‘conditions’ stipulate that Europe must allow free entry to Monsanto and all the other U.S. purveyors of genetically modified food. Tens of thousands of Europeans have taken to the streets, protesting the TTIP.

European countries which have thus far remained remarkably free of genetically modified ingredients, understandably fear the forced introduction of what the call “Frankenfoods.”

Their health, compared to American health, justifies their concerns.

In a following article we will explain what worldwide analysts have found in studying healthy countries that include the Mediterranean Diet, the Nordic Diet, the Okinawa diet, the traditional Asian diet and the French (paradox) diet… and what those lively people have in common though their diets range from heavy on veggies to heavy on meat and dairy.
