The study found that 11 million people, nearly half of whom are younger than 70, die each year owing to eating unhealthy food; in comparison, tobacco is linked to 8 million deaths, and blood pressure to 10.4m.
Interestingly, more deaths were caused by diets containing too few whole grains, fruit, nuts and seeds than by diets with high levels of trans fats, sugary drinks, and processed meats.
Around 10 million of the 11 million diet-related deaths in 2017 were because of cardiovascular disease, the risk of which is increased by both high salt in the diet and insufficient whole grains, fruit, and vegetables.
In addition to the deaths, the study found that poor diets were responsible for 255 million DALYs - disability-adjusted life years.

For example, the world on average consumes more than 10 times the recommended amount of sugar-sweetened beverages, and 86 percent more sodium per person than is considered safe.
The global diet included 16 percent of the recommended amount of milk (71g average intake per day, compared with 435g) and about a quarter (23 percent) of the recommended amount of whole grains (29g compared with 125g).
Its experts recommend limiting alcohol consumption, red and processed meat and making fruit and vegetables a major part of the daily diet.
ASHKAN AFSHIN: This study shows that that unhealthy diet is the leading risk factor for deaths in the majority of the countries of the vote.
Mexico ranked 11th, the U.S. 43rd and China 140th.
