The ranking sees the U.K. beat countries like Ireland, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, and the United States.

Italy is officially the world’s second healthiest country, narrowly beaten to the top spot by Spain. The rest of the top 10, in order, are Spain, Italy, Iceland, Japan, Switzerland, Sweden, Australia, Singapore, and Norway. The U.K. placed 19th, mainly in part to its high obesity rate.
