Italy may have a stagnant economy, but its people are by far the healthiest in the world. Italians are in way better shape than Americans, Canadians, and Brits, who all suffer from higher blood pressure and cholesterol and poorer mental health. In fact, a newborn in Italy can expect to live well into their 80s. A big reason why Italians are so healthy—as part of their overall way of life—is their diet, which is rich in vegetables and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil. Italy is a living embodiment of how important it is for consumers to have access to fresh produce, fruit, lean meats and fish, all of which Italians love to indulge in.
