Heart disease and cancer rates in Britain now behind all other original EU members

As Britain continues to follow the standard Western diet, they continue to get sicker and sicker and sicker...

In 2013, in the UK:

  • Top cause of death was smoking
  • Then obesity, poor diet and inactivity
  • Early deaths due to preventable disease are more prevalent than in 18 other leading nations
  • Heart disease and cancer rates are higher than all 14 original members of the EU plus Australia, Canada, Norway and the US
  • Alcohol-related cirrhosis of the liver rose up 65% from 14th to 9th place as a leading cause of death
  • Drug use disorders leapt up by 577% from 64th cause of death to 21st

The Lancet study on the health statistics of Western countries from 1990 to 2010 was published online in March 2013.  As reported on March 5, 2013 by mirror.co.uk.
