Top Ten Preventable Risks to World Health

A recent report published by the World Health Organisation lists these top risks - which account for 40% of global deaths. These include being under or over weight, having unsafe sex, extreme alcohol consumption, high cholesterol and iron deficiency.

Life expectancy could be increased by up to ten years around the world if such health risks were tackled, researchers said. See 'World Health Organisation'
