1 in 5 Deaths Linked to Poor Diets Worldwide

Poor diet linked to 1 in 5 deaths globally: Study - The Jakarta Post Poor Diet Causes Hundreds Of Deaths In India Annually: Study

In the study, researchers analysed eating habits of people across 195 countries to estimate how much poor diets contribute to mortality.

Chris Murray, director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington, which led the work, said it "affirms what many have thought for several years".

The problem, he said, is not only what people are eating, but it's also what they're not eating.

For people seeking to improve their diets, adding in more whole grains and nuts may be a good place to start, since people in the study weren't eating almost as much of them as they should have been, Afshin states. 10 million deaths were accounted to cardiovascular disease, 913,000 cancer-related deaths, and nearly 339,000 deaths from Type-2 diabetes.

The researchers estimated that in 2017, cardiovascular disease was the leading cause of diet-related deaths around the world, followed by certain cancers and diabetes.

The new study combines and analyses data from epidemiological studies - in the absence of long-term randomised trials, which are not always feasible in nutrition - to identify associations between dietary factors and non-communicable diseases. Nestle noted that the researchers seem to be recommending a largely, but not exclusively, plant-based diet, "and that's what everybody is saying these days".

As the resolution headed to the White House, supporters in both parties made a final plea for Trump to sign it. He said the measure could "disrupt U.S. security co-operation agreements with more than 100 countries".

The study found that in 2017 more deaths were caused by diets with too little of the right kind of foods, such as whole grains and fruits, than by diets with too much of the wrong kind of foods, such as trans fats and sugary drinks.

"We are highlighting the importance of low consumption of healthy foods as compared to the greater consumption of unhealthy foods", Afshin said. The United States ranked 43rd, while Britain was 23rd, China 140th and India 118th. Closing the list was Uzbekistan, where there were 891.8 deaths per 100,000 in 2017, up from 609.3 in 1990. Poor diet represents 16% of all DALYs among adults globally.

Physical inactivity, as well as various environmental, economic and social factors, are major contributors, he said. High levels of salt consumption can increase blood pressure, thereby heightening the risk of heart disease.

Doctors say when we only focus on getting rid of bad foods, and not on adding nutritional ones, we make a mistake.

Based on the study, the world needs more nourishment instead of just any food on the table.

It's always been conventional wisdom that pretty much the worst thing you can do for your health is smoke cigarettes. That makes subpar nutrition a bigger health threat than well-known risks like smoking, according to the research.
