Most of the modern diseases affect mostly older people who would not have been alive at their age a couple of hundred years ago.
You don't have to go back that far. IIRC the life expectancy in the USA in 1900 was 45 and probably remains in that neighborhood for a lot of the world currently.

Personally I'd pick poverty.
