In order to identify the healthiest
countries in the world the Bloomberg
Rankings created health score and
health risk scores with populations
of at least 1 million, reports the
Independent.
The ratings were given depending on
factors such as birth, mortality rates
and cause of death. Health risks are
based on factors such as number of
young people who smoke, people
suffering from high cholesterol and
number of immunisation.
The study also pointed towards a
global rise in the level of
consumption of healthy food like
fruits and vegetables, along side an
increasing intake of unhealthy junk
food.
