Global Burden of Disease
A report produced by the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation. Researchers at University of Washington lead this. Every year, they review the major causes of death and disease in basically every country in the world, and they analyze hundreds of causes of death and disease, and they analyze what people are dying from, and they look at all the data. Their most recent report concluded that the American diet killed 672,000 people in the United States last year. Worldwide, food is killing more than 11 million people per year, poor food choices.
