NCDs Accounting for Most Global Deaths from NCDs

NCD/DESCRIPTION

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs)

CVDs, the number one cause of death globally (mainly from coronary heart disease and stroke), can be mostly prevented by addressing risk factors; these include tobacco use, unhealthy diet and obesity, physical inactivity, and diabetes.

Chronic respiratory diseases

These are chronic diseases of the airways and other structures of the lung; among the most common are asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, an incurable, life-threatening lung disease that interferes with normal breathing). COPD is caused primarily by tobacco smoke (firsthand use or secondhand smoke).

Cancer

With lung, stomach, liver, colon, and breast cancer causing most cancer deaths, behavioral and dietary risks include high body mass index, lack of physical activity, low fruit/vegetable intake, and tobacco and alcohol use. Viral infections (e.g., Hepatitis B and C viruses; Human papillomavirus) are also causes of cancer.

Diabetes

A chronic disease that occurs when the body cannot effectively regulate blood sugar, uncontrolled diabetes can lead to death as a consequence of high fasting blood sugar. Addressing risk factors (e.g., healthy diet, physical activity, normal body weight) can help prevent or delay onset of adult-onset diabetes (type 2).
