Health effects of dietary risks in 195 countries, 1990–2017 Published:April 03, 2019
- Globally in 2017, 1 in 5 deaths were associated not by what people are eating but rather what they are NOT eating: whole grains, legumins, fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds.
- Globally, one in five deaths (11 million deaths) in 2017 were associated with poor diet, with cardiovascular disease being the biggest contributor, followed by cancers and type 2 diabetes.
- Largest shortfalls in global consumption were seen for foods such as nuts and seeds, milk, and whole grains, while sugary drinks, processed meat and sodium were overeaten.
- The largest number of diet-related deaths were associated with eating too much sodium, not enough whole grains and not enough fruits.
- Across all 15 dietary factors, more deaths were associated with not eating enough healthy foods compared with eating too many unhealthy foods.
