Europeans live longer but obesity threatens life quality

In its European Health Report, covering 53 countries in a vast geographical area from the Atlantic to the Pacific, the World Health Organization (WHO) found well-being is the highest in the world but varies widely within the region.
 
Average life expectancy from birth has increased from 76.7 years in 2010 to 77.8 years in 2015. Women continue to live longer than men - 81.1 years compared to 74.6 years for men, although the gap has slightly narrowed.
 
 

Oxford University, UK’s oldest seat of learning, now a place more Muslim students are calling home

Arriving at the University of Oxford to begin her studies, Mahdiyah Rahman suddenly felt anxious. “I didn’t know how many other Muslim students would be there. I wasn’t sure what to expect.”
 
During her first week, the 19-year-old student discovered that there were just two other Muslims in Oriel, the Oxford college where she would eat, sleep and study during her time at the university. “I was the only one there wearing a headscarf,” she recalled. Over the summer Rahman had given little thought to the realities of practicing her faith at university, but standing in the crowded hall at Freshers’ Fair, surrounded by hundreds of stalls advertising student clubs and societies, she felt overwhelmed.
