Bad diets now kill more people than smoking

Bad Diets Are Responsible For More Deaths Than Smoking, Global Study Finds Poor diet turns deadly in India, says study

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.

The Global Burden of Disease study tracked dietary trends from 1990 to 2017 in 195 countries.

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.

Poor diet kills more than 500,000 Americans a year and more than 90,000 Brits - eclipsing smoking and hypertension as risk factors for premature death, a staggering new study reveals.

It said the biggest problem with the British diet was a lack of whole grains, fruit, vegetables and nuts and seeds. The report also stated that one in five deaths can be avoided by eating and drinking better.

He added: "We are highlighting the importance of low consumption of healthy foods as compared to the greater consumption of unhealthy foods".

She said the UK's challenge to the food industry to reduce sugar from everyday foods was "a clear step in the right direction".

India launched a counter-terror operation against a JeM training camp in Balakot in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

Israel had the lowest rate at 89 per 100,000 people, followed by France, Spain and then Japan. Diets high in sugar, salt and bad fats are known risk factors for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and many types of cancer.

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.

"Dietary policies focusing on promoting healthy eating can have a more beneficial effect than policies advocating against unhealthy foods".

Perhaps that's why the authors of the new Lancet study say their findings point to the need for coordinated, global efforts.
