    I see nothing "healthy" about their looking. You should say "to me they look"

    They are healthy and have the longest lifespan in the world because they are closely related, which is different than being inbred. Genetically they are mostly at the balance point where it actually has positive effects. It's even intuitive, as humanity has probably evolved to favor that closely related pattern, just not too close. They have good food as well but it cannot explain this alone:

    "It is probably because of a genetic background," said Stefansson. "I don't think it has anything to do with the environment we live in. I don't think it has anything to do with the clean air, the fresh water, or the fish we eat. I think it has all to do with how we select our parents."

    Stefansson said his company — which has collected genetic information on one-third of Iceland's population — investigated the underpinnings of longevity by comparing the genes of those 90 and up to see if they were more related to each other than control groups.

    "And indeed they are much more related to each other," he said. "We established that the ability to become 90 years of age was basically genetic."

    They also have the lowest violent crime while the country is filled with firearms. Some braindead journalists went there to investigate the paradox and they still can't explain it. Such a difficult riddle, what in the hell Iceland is lacking compared to the US dayum dayum !

    I will agree that they have a kinda more "traditional" economy, mostly based on cod fishing



    But the question is about physical health, not economy
