'Lifestyle' diseases the world's biggest killer

Non-communicable diseases are now the leading cause of death around the world, with developing countries hit hardest, according to a new report from the World Health Organisation (WHO).

WHO says the rise in "lifestyle" diseases can be blamed on tobacco use, poor diet and the harmful use of alcohol, and warns public policies are needed to prevent them.

Dr Ala Alwan, the organisation's director-general for non-communicable diseases, says lifestyle diseases are responsible for 63 per cent of global deaths based on WHO's estimates for 2008.

Dr Alwan 80 says per cent of deaths due to non-communicable diseases are actually taking place in low and middle-income countries.

He says premature death is an issue of major concern.
"What is of concern is the fact that 9 million of the 36 million people who die every year because of non-communicable diseases die before the age of 60 years," he said.

"Premature death and premature illness, disability at a young age has an impact on socioeconomic development. It reduces productivity. It also reduces household income in addition to the enormous negative, enormously negative health impact of non-communicable diseases."
