I studied Environmental Sciences
at the National University of Distance Education for 4 years. I would like to know what problems you are talking about, we certainly have political problems like almost every other country in the world and we have suffered economic losses as a result of the crisis, but all the major world organizations classify Spain as a very developed country (UN, IMF, World Bank , OECD…)
According to scientific studies, several factors influence lifespan, genetics accounts for about 25%, the rest are environmental factors, such as:
Healthcare: Spain’s PUBLIC healthcare system has long been in the top 10 in the world, although a recent study put Spain 19th in the world due to budget cuts. I capitalized the public part because yes, anyone can access it.
Diet: The Mediterranean diet is one of the best, although we are beginning to have problems with obesity, mainly due to changes in our lifestyle.As someone said, Spain is the orchard of Europe, fresh fruit and vegetables cost much less than in other European countries. And less processed foods.
exercise: people walk, yes. My friend went to the US on a scholarship and people were shocked that she wanted to study at a university that was about a 10-15 minute walk from her house. They tell him that only the homeless go there (?
