Which is the Unhealthiest Country in The World?

Czech Republic, the country with the heaviest drinkers in the world with each individual consuming 13.7 litres of alcohol per annum is the unhealthiest in the world.

Each individual consumes at least 1.5 shots a day. It also ranked 11th highest for tobacco consumption. 


Following the list in second to sixth places are Russia, Slovenia, Belarus, Slovakia and Hungary respectively.

A new research conducted by Clinic Compare alcoholic consumption, tobacco consumption and the prevalence of obesity in 179 countries around the world. These factors were used to analyze the healthiest and unhealthiest countries.

Eastern Europe is the unhealthiest region in the world, occupying 9 out of 10 spots on the list. The exception was the US, which ranked 10th in the joint place with Lithuania. 

Oceania tops the list for obesity with 41% of the population in Samoa having BMI more than 30. Fiji, Tonga and Kiribati were also in the top 10 list for obesity. 

List of Healthiest Countries

Afghanistan enjoys being the healthiest country, with second lowest rate of obesity in the world. Only 2.7% of the population had a BMI over 30. Ius residents only smoked 83 cigarettes a year and drank the least alcohol.
