Denmark unhealthiest country in the Nordics

Denmark is the least healthy place to live in the Nordic region, according to an extensive study published this week in the medical journal The Lancet.

The study assessed the living conditions of 188 countries over the past 25 years, using 33 health-related Sustainable Development Goal indicators such as poverty, water quality, education, disease, mortality rates, violence, road injuries and pollution.

Overall, Denmark ranked at number 16 with a total score of 79 out of 100.

Denmark’s overall results were affected by low scores in categories concerning alcohol consumption (39 out of 100), obesity (51), suicide (55) and HIV (56).
