    I’m not sure how the healthiest nation is defined here. I would expect the healthiest nations in the world to have the longest life-expectancy coupled with the lowest incidence of chronic illness throughout their life, measured as a percentage of population for example. From such criteria, it would be then most interesting to collect BMI, body fat percentage, and a host of analyses in order to reset standards in nutrition and health care in countries with poor health ratings. It is not clear, despite the brief description if this is the case here.
