A bad diet is worse for you than drugs, alcohol and tobacco - combined

Certain food choices could cut years off of your life according to a new report.

Poor diets pose a greater risk to people's health than alcohol, tobacco, drugs, and unsafe sex combined, according to the Global Panel of Agriculture and Food Systems for Nutrition (GLOPAN).

Poor diet, whether it's too much processed food or a lack of nutritious food, may lead to type two diabetes, coronary heart disease, cancers, hypertension, anaemia and a whole range of other health issues, CNN reported.

The number of overweight and obese people is expected to grown from 1.3 billion in 2015 to 3.3 billion globally by 2030, according to the report.
