Japan is Asia's healthiest nation according to Bloomberg's 2019 Healthiest Country Index. The index grades nations based on variables including life expectancy while imposing penalties on risks such as tobacco use and obesity. It also takes into consideration environmental factors including access to clean water and sanitation. The healthiest nation is Spain, ranking 6th in 2017 and forecast to have the longest lifespan by 2040, overtaking Japan, followed by Italy. Time to switch to a Mediterranean diet??

Below, the top 20:
