1 Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest. ...read more.

As a man who've lived in Japan and enjoyed the real Japanese food, I can say proudly that it is one of the best food in the world with rich history. It's less oily but you can eat a lot of vegetables, and its calories are really few so good for your diet too. Also go and search "beautiful Japanese food" on Google. I'm pretty sure you'll be amazed at how colourful and attractive they are... Promise! :D

If you think you can eat only raw sushi and vegetables at Japanese restaurant, you've been to the wrong one for sure... Aw poor you :( The real ones are made with so much cares and take a long time to cook. Seriously, be careful to the ones that are ran by non-Japanese people with no previous working experience at restaurant in Japan at all... It's totally different from the original... eww disgusting... (even if the restaurant people looks like Asian, they may not be from Japan but like Korea or China... I know it's hard to tell.. )

As much as I like French and Mexican food, I got to say that Japanese (which yes, I do adore too) is amazing. Japanese, Chinese, and South Korean people do NOT eat dogs. Out of the three cultures, Japanese is the best. sushi, dumplings, summer rolls, and more!

I really think Japan has the healthiest food because most of them is raw like fish, vagetables and beef meats too and it taste really good.Maybe that is why they have older Japanese in their population.

Definitely! I was raised in the city of Kyoto, where I ate so much but never gained any baby fat. Japan has one of the lowest obesity rates in the world

2 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to ...read more.

Red wine and lots of vegetables are part of the diet.
Healthy food in term of quality and high level of controls.

In some part in North of France too much fat is used, that's true.
But things are changing from bad fat like palm oil to more excellent oil like canola (rapeseed) oil.
Lots of different rices, vegetables, fruits, fishes, meats and all that nicely cooked.
Each region has its different main own dishes.
And France is the country of bread and not only baguette but more than thousand of different breads, and also croissants, eclair, macron etc...

Health results also from pleasure of eating.

Butter you said? Yes, but not more than elsewhere, and surely better use butter than palm oil (used in all countries), worse than butter but without any vitamins.
And you should know that France has the highest level of veterinary and fraud controls in restaurants and food producers, for that reason each time there is a fraud, it's largely broadcast from the media as part of the transparency required by the public authorities. If a case is publicly known it's because of those controls, without any controls or because of corruption those cases are not known. In 2015 exactly 0 death related to food. So be tranquil, no matter at all, and if you find one please do not hesitate to contact our services.

Base of French food are vegetables, rices, grain, fishes. Meat, sauces, fries are also part of French food but only eaten in certain occasions and only for a certain part of people. It's usual in France to eat for lunch only a large mixed salad and fruit for lunch and a vegetable soup, rice (or similar) and fruit for diner. They lot also lots of cereals like Americans (and from same US trade marks). Really good and healthy, the king for Atlantic fishes including the famous blue Lobster.

In France they eat lots of diverse vegetables, fruits, fishes and meats.
Their meals are really complete even if in certain regions they are still using maybe too much fat (butter or meat). In general they have eat import large amount of food from the whole world (Rices, cereals, Asian food, African food..).
And the ratio of healthy food and oil is increasing (Quinoa, wild rices, canola oil, colza oil, walnut oil...)
The ratio of obesity is one of the lowest among the so-called Western countries.

It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, ...read more.

I must refute rumor about chinese food Chinese do not eat everything. Only some provinces have the custom of eating wild animals. Many Chinese people eat food, French and Japanese also eat it, but when they eat it, people don't think it's strange, on the contrary, they think it's elegant. Most Chinese don't eat dogs! the people who keep dog is much more than the peop who eat dog, Chinese food is not fast food, but American Chinese food is fast food, and can not taste the taste of Chinese food, very bad, so every time Chinese food is said to be cheap and unhealthy, I am not surprised.

I didn't eat chinese food but I know that they spoil it too much because of the bad stereotype of eating insects and wild animals. In reality, chinese cuisine is very rich and healthy

Chinese pasta (noodles) are healthy and good compared to such disgusting Italian pasta spread all over the world polluting our plates.

We invented what you call Pasta, more known as Noodles, and not at all Italy, they are just able to copy.

4 Singapore Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, and often referred to as the Lion City, the Garden City, and the Red Dot, is a global city and sovereign state in Southeast Asia and the world's only island city-state.

Singapore is one of the world's most unhealthiest or the most.The chefs there all use palm oil which is horrible for your body.The oil unlike olive oil cannot be digested.I live in singapore so I know.the oil sticks to the inner wall of the intestine or blood vessels blocking blood flow.And Singapore's diabetic rate is one of the world's highest as four of ten people have a kind of diabetes.Every minute one of four adults lose a limb to diabetes.Many of the delicacies or junk food have been artificially produced.So I will strongly advise you to not come to Singapore to visit.They also have one of the worlds most horrible tasting foods

I've never had cuisine from Singapore, but I've heard it is quite healthy.

Singapore's food is not as healthy as some of the above countries like Japan or Korea, but it is definitely healthier that the USA

Chicken rice, mince meat noodles, char kway teow, mee rebus, mee goreng, fried oyster eggs, chilli crab, duck rice, roti prata, fish curry head

It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. ...read more.

Indian food is a well balanced food. The varieties and ingredients have been meticulously chosen over thousands of years for their flavor, nourishment, energy, health influence and taste and nutrient requirements and so on.

Indian is not only a Gourmet's delight but a good nutritionist's prescription.
It is a science by itself when it comes to a meal preparation, ingredients and accompaniments.

Most people who say against Indian food being healthy probably have never been to India. They only go to the Americanized restaurants serving only butter chicken. To experience real Indian food, you must try homecooked food.

Indian food is well cooked with so many spices which are rich antibiotics and the usage of spices is only known by Indians. they have huge variety of spices which are added to daily food which makes the food digestive and delicious but nowadays in India mostly teens are addicted to fast foods (like Chinese noodles, manchurian) which are greesy foods.

Indian food is not healthy at all. Indians eat too much spicy food, too much mutton meat, too much ghee, and high sugar level food. India has one of the highest rate diabetes, high blood pressure, and coronary heart disease. Plus, India's life expectancy is merely 65 years old, on par with Russia.

6 Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. ...read more.

Swedish food should be in the top 10, it is much healthier than American food which is proccesed, the United States should even be in the bottom, what are America thinking

Swedish food often is meatballs, fish, raw fish and vegetables! Our foods are often not processed and ar very healthy!

The only Swedish cuisine I've heard of is Swedish Meatballs, something healthy and tasty to eat.

Not true at all. We have very fat food to be honest.

7 Italy Italy, in italian Repubblica Italiana, is a unitary parliamentary republic in Europe. ...read more.

Who said Mediterranean diet?

Italy is alarming on new figures show that it has a higher proportion of overweight children than anywhere in Europe.

Obesity rates in Italy two-year-olds are the highest in Europe with a rate of 42%.

Italy should be at the end of this list or even out of.

Bye bye Italy.

The well known Mediterranean diet and the use of simple, fresh and unprocessed ingredients, makes this cuisine easily the healthiest in the world. Italy has one of the highest life expectancy in the world, the healthy cuisine being the top factor.

Italian food is easy to make. Italian food uses farm grown ingredients that are grown with out any use of antibiotics or preservatives. Not only that but the food tastes truly spectacular.

Healthy Italian food?

9 Spain Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state largely located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, with archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and several small territories on and near the north African coast.

In Spain we have very natural & healthy food indeed so I think it should be upper in this list... or at least changed by England.

This is the same situation as Singapore...

10 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

Korean kimchi and other brewed food are very healthy. They have lots of vitamin and minerals and protein and everything, I assured you. They may be seen as a bit disgusting or unusual food to other countries and Western people, but it is scientifically proved that Korean food is tasty and good for your health. They can be salty, yes, I do admit that, but other nutrients backs up that flaw, so it is okay. We also use lots of vegetables, unlike Japan, which uses lots of fish and China, which uses lots of meats like pork and gammon.

Korean food history is more than three thousand years and it has developed into good, better ways. If you start eating Korean food, at first, you might feel gross and stuff, but if you keep eating, it will be quite addictive.

I'm Korean and I'll admit, a lot of salt goes in our food, however, our food includes so much vegetables. Practically every meal will include eating leafy greens, beans, roots, peppers, spices, and more.

Korean food is delicious and healthy even without any meat involved, a lot of vegetarian options, although sometimes there can be too much salt added to foods or msg if going to certain restaurants.

Korean food taste digusting! Yeah,it may be healthy but it will be the worst food you ever eat! For taste and flavour, eating it makes me puke! Don't judge, it's my opinion!

14 Vietnam Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia.

It should rank higher than this. Not many other cuisines on this list have successfully minimised their dependence on oil usage or maintained the fine balance between freshness of herbs and spices with the meat components than Vietnamese.

How is france higher than this? Nearly everything is fresh, no frying, no lactose, light portions. The list goes on and on. This should be number 1

S is rife, the fda are in bed with monsanto, the U.
