Great news for those that live here already or for you lovely people wanting to live in Spain.
The medical journal, Lancet, states that according to the European League Table, which is composed of data collected over a 20 year period, the healthiest place to live in Europe is Spain.
Maybe the Mediterranean diet, heavy on fruit, salads, fish and olive oil, is responsible for the low death rate from heart disease – Spain has the 3rd lowest level of years of life lost. It also does well on a number of cancers – pancreatic, prostate, breast and esophageal. Families still care for ailing relatives – taking daily meals to those in hospital is normal and premature deaths from falls are low.
We’ll drink to that! (a mineral water of course) ;-)
