If you are a health conscious traveler who is very particular about the food you eat, then here is the good news.

This is not a surprise. Every time you read about someone breaking the record for the oldest person in the world, Japan by default would be their country of origin. That is how good the Japanese diet is. Combine this with good-hearted people, you get a lifetime of happiness.

Italy might have lost its first position, but the pizza and the piazza nation with that extra drizzle of virgin olive oil always tops the list when it comes to health. The next time you go, soak in every piece of art there is and stuff your mouths with enough delicacies.

At the epicentre of the limelight is Spain. A nation where things move at a leisurely pace. The locals here have an obsession with food and wine. But thanks to the Mediterranean diet, there is also healthy eating. At this rate, Spain is expected to have the highest lifespan by 2040.
