Can you guess what's the cause of most of the preventable deaths around the world?
Wiki says worldwide, it's hypertension.Don't need to guess. Looked it us with Google in 3 seconds.
There's an implication that people who quit smoking turned to food.They write that the shift in the relative impact of obesity and smoking has been caused both by a reduction, since 1993, in the number of Americans who smoke and an increase, during the same period, in the number of people who are obese.
Yes, but note that the majority of people worldwide end up dying from non-preventable old age:I find it incredibly depressing that malnutrition and obesity are both in the top ten.
It is estimated that of the roughly 150,000 people who die each day across the globe, about two thirds—100,000 per day—die of age-related causes. In industrialized nations the proportion is much higher, reaching 90%. Thus, albeit indirectly, biological aging (senescence) is by far the leading cause of death. Whether senescence as a biological process itself can be slowed down, halted or even reversed, is a subject of current scientific speculation and research.
