Research pinpoints which country will have the highest life expectancy by 2040

A recent study by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) published in the medical journal The Lancet, said Spain will have the highest average life expectancy by 2040 at 85.8 years, stated a story posted on Culture Trip, a site dedicated unique stories abut a place, its people and culture.

It said Spain will beat Japan, which currently holds bragging rights to having the highest average life expectancy at about 84 years, and which is seen to have a life expectancy of 85.7 years by 2040.

And to what did the study attributed this?

“It suggested that it is Spain’s healthy Mediterranean diet that will help propel Spaniards into the number one spot. Spain also has one of the world’s best healthcare systems – seventh in the world according to the World Health Organization. It is free for Spanish residents and has a high number of doctors,” the Culture Trip report said.

Meantime, with Japan landing second place, the report said Singapore will rank third at 85.4 while Switzerland will rank fourth at 85.2.

“Studies have put the long life of Swiss citizens down to everything from higher-than-average levels of wealth to their love of dairy produce,” stated the report.

The study attributed high life expectancy to food diet, citing Spain’s Mediterranean cuisine, which largely makes wide use of vegetables, olive oil, grains, fish, wine and meat; and Japan’s diet rich in fish and vegetables.

According to the report, the study looked at 140 countries around the world and forecast that global life expectancy is expected to rise by an average of 4.4 years. It studied diseases such as cancer, HIV/AIDS and respiratory disease as well as risk factors including alcohol, smoking and diet.

Citing the research, it also noted that the most premature deaths are caused by high blood pressure, BMI, blood sugar, smoking and drinking alcohol.
