15 Countries with the Lowest Cancer Rates in the World in 2018

This article will bring you to the list of the countries with the lowest cancer rates in the world in 2018. Insider Monkey’s latest article is worth reading it. So why is it that countries  have the lowest cancer rates? Many factors add up, including simply the western lifestyle. There aren’t many processed foods or other modern conveniences to go around in the countries below. And smoking just doesn’t seem like something the people of Africa or the Middle East would do on a large scale. Plus, it does make sense when it comes to skin cancer. Residents of the countries below typically have a darker skin pigmentation and often wear traditional clothing that shields them from the sun. While Denmark, land of the fair-skinned, is currently the country with the highest cancer rates. Although you wouldn’t think sun damage would be a problem in a place so cold.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked four of countries with the lowest cancer rates in the world in 2018 from their list.

The first one is Saudi Arabia. In fact, all Muslim countries have low cancer rates, especially skin cancer rates. Guess those burkas really do serve a purpose. The second country can be Congo now. Someone tell us Africa’s trick for keeping this disease at bay – we need all the help we can get here in the states. The third country should be Nepal on our short list. However, this country did make a regional list for countries in Asia with the most cervical cancer in 2014. Glad to see their rates have since gone down. At last, but not least let’s check out Yemen. The neighboring countries of Yemen, Oman, and Saudi Arabia all made a list. There must be something in that middle-eastern water.
