World’s Biggest Health Risk
The world’s biggest health risk has shifted in the past two decades, as longer lives are marred by modern afflictions.
FOX News Radio’s Ron Flatter reports:
It used to be more challenging to get through the early years of life.
But a new study from the University of Washington says high blood pressure, smoking, and drinking have become the world’s leading health risks.
Back in 1990, a similar study showed people were more likely to die before age five.
But that was before a heightened effort to vaccinate children in poor countries against diseases like polio and measles.
The study covering data through 2010 says Japan continues to be the nation where people live to the oldest age.
