Global Study Finds One In Five Deaths Linked To Poor Diet
One of the biggest studies of it’s kind has released findings that 1 in 5 deaths are linked to an unhealthy diet, making it the leading risk factor of mortality.
Researchers have discovered that the biggest driving factor is that millions of people are eating a diet, which consists of excess salt and saturated fat, whilst not consuming enough fruit, vegetables and whole grains.
Health complications linked to consuming an unhealthy diet include hypertension, diabetes, obesity, cancer and dementia.
Typically, a Western diet is high in saturated fat, red meat, ‘simple’ carbohydrates such as white bread and white rice, and processed foods such as biscuits, cakes, crisps and fizzy drinks; whilst lacking in fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, seafood and poultry.
These statistics could mean that someone under your roof is likely to die due to complications of a poor diet. Is this risk really worth the cost?
