Cuba is one of the five health states in the world

Healthy Countries is not the most popular information topic for the media. Newspapers usually write about viruses, diseases, or epidemics that threaten the whole region at once. American Foreign Policy magazine has published the ratings of five countries and explained its choice.


In general, Japanese people live longer than representatives of other nations. Their average life span is 86 years. The secret of Aponia's health consists of exercise and low cholesterol foods. The abnormal diet includes fish, rice and sea weed, which reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer.

Fitness clubs have come into fashion in Japan aponia. The health of several generations of this nation is maintained and improved by a special state program that provides exercise before and during the workday. This project is funded by the Government.

The largest mobile phone operator in the world already offers Fitness Phone, a daily physical exercise measurement service for advanced technology lovers.

Nowadays, the health of the population is threatened by the "western" foods with its traditionally high fat content. The Japanese are suffering from 7 million diabetes mellitus, which is rapidly spreading across Asia.


France has the lowest rate of heart disease, which is the leading cause of death. Specialists explain this fact by eating slowly and consuming a glass of wine daily. The French cuisine is traditionally rich in fats and carbohydrates, but it is eaten slowly, a little at once, and is washed down with moderate amounts of wine.

It should be noted that in 2002 the World Health Organization declared France the healthiest country in the European Union. Although many French people die of cancer and other serious illnesses, the average life expectancy in France is 75 years for men and 83 years for women, and continues to rise.

Obesity is now declared a major problem, and in France there is a high mortality rate due to cancer and cardiovascular disease. The country's leadership on the low rate of cardiovascular disease is in danger of becoming negative guidance.


Iceland has the lowest infant mortality rate and the best prenatal care in the world. The numbers speak for themselves. 2 children under 5 years of age for each baby. In the US this figure is 7 children.

The Icelandic government pays for a wide range of maternal and child health care services. In addition, it provides 80% of the mother's salary for three months.

However, now Iceland's population is also suffering from obesity. The country consumes enormous amounts of sugar per capita each year, largely due to excessive passion for carbonated drinks.


Sweden can boast a high probability of survival in the case of cancer, as well as almost 100% immunization of children.

Almost 14% of public spending is on health and accounts for 85% of medical care costs. In addition, 9 million people are served in state-of-the-art hospitals and clinics equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment.

Swedes believe that comprehensive social assistance, which provides everything from professional development assistance to street lighting, lowers the population's disease rate.

There is still a queue problem. Swedes have to wait for admission and action. Attempts to transfer small medical facilities to private ownership have made no obvious progress.


Liberty Island can rightly be proud of its low life expectancy and average life expectancy. The level of every six thousand doctors in Cuba is the highest in the world.

According to experts, many doctors cannot guarantee the health of the population, but in Cuba it contributes to the effectiveness of disease prevention measures. Thousands of Cuban doctors travel abroad for study tours annually. With professionalism and public health support in Cuba, results are being achieved, even Europe can be jealous.

On the other hand, the focus on prevention and early diagnosis leads to a shortage of drugs in the country. In addition, the openness of Cuban society and the increasing purchasing power of large sections of the population are expected to stimulate the "import" of European and American diseases related to diet and nutrition.

It should also be noted that France, Austria, Australia, Switzerland and Russia are the most genetically healthy countries according to the Demi March NGO.

Every year, 8 million babies are born with severe genetic defects. It makes up 6% of the total number of newborns. In most developed countries, the number of newborns with severe genetic impact ranges from 397 to 425 per 10,000 children.

Russia's rate is 429 for 10,000 newborns. The United States ranks 20th with 478 percent of its 10,000 children right after Cuba. The enclosure is enclosed by Benin, Saudi Arabia and Sudan (correspondingly for 109 newborns from 779 to 820). The worst figures from the post-Soviet countries were in Tajikistan (752), Kyrgyzstan (735) and Azerbaijan (631).

It should be remembered that not only the environment, the level of medical and genetic counseling, and health in general, are affected by our health. Much depends on each of us – its culture, education, and lifestyle.
