The World’s Healthiest Countries

by Reb Gutman Locks on Mystical Paths

(Reb Akiva adds…   People often worry about Israel, whether living or visiting.  Israel is portrayed in the media as dangerous, terror ridden, or alternately backward.  The truth is Israel is a modern Western democracy and society with strong religious and moral foundations.  The life expectancy is the 3rd highest in the world, it ranks in the top 20 of the happiest places to live, and below is Israel’s ranking in the healthiest list…)

(Reb Akiva adds… The Israeli lifestyle is significantly higher in exercise, follows a Mediterranean style diet that’s low in saturated fats, high in vegetable intake, and low in beef intake, than most Western nations.  It may seem strange for an American to have some salad and some white spreadable cheese for breakfast, but it’s certainly healthy.)
