Ortalama Yaşam Süresi En Yüksek 10 Ülke

Dünya Ekonomik Forumu’nun (WEF) Küresel Rekabet Araştırması, sadece dünya çapında ülkelerin finansal sağlığına değil aynı zamanda halkın sağlığıyla da ilgileniyor.

Dünya Ekonomik Forumu, dünyada en uzun yaşadığı yerleri gösteren, ortalama yaşam süresi sıralamasını yayınladı. Beklediğiniz gibi, ekonomisi daha gelişmiş olanlar, büyük olasılıkla daha sağlıklı beslenme ve sağlık hizmetlerine daha kolay ulaşım sağlayabilme nedeniyle daha uzun ömürlere sahip.

Ancak, ilginç olan şu ki; listelenen yerlerden bazılarında intiharla sonuçlanan ruh hastalıkları konusundaki artış nedeniyle beklenenden daha az bir ömür süresi söz konusu.
