The WHO reports that over-nutrition now causes many more deaths than under-nutrition, and is responsible for increasing millions of unnecessary deaths each year, in "developing" as well as "developed" countries: --Unhealthy diets with too much meat, animal products, salt, sugar, processed and "fast" foods, and not enough plant-based foods, now exceed tobacco as the leading cause of early death and disability in countries such as the US. --Tragically, this has now resulted in long-term suffering for our children as well. For example, in the US "Type 2" diabetes used to be called "Adult onset" diabetes. However because of unhealthy eating habits this devastating disease is now also occurring in our children. --In spite of all our medical advances and trillions in healthcare costs, the US Surgeon General reports that we may see "the first generation that will be less healthy and have a shorter life expectancy than their parents" --Unfortunately, people world-wide are now adopting our "developed" countries' lifestyles. So diet related deaths are now rapidly increasing epidemics in "developing" countries as well.
