A report in the BBC on the study noted the finding that some 10 million of the 11 million deaths each year attributed to diet were from cardiovascular diseases, or diseases caused by the narrowing or blocking of blood vessels, often in or near the heart or brain. However, we have to aim to eat them in moderation as it has been revealed that eating a bad diet is actually worse than smoking and causes more deaths each year. "Death from a poor diet is more than it is from blood pressure and tobacco usage".

Israel, France, Spain and Japan were some of the top countries which had the least poor diet-related deaths.

Research carried out by Dr Christopher Murray, Director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, University of Washington in the USA has found that Israel has the world's healthiest diet, or to be more precise, the world's least unhealthy diet.
