Throughout the world--but especially in developed nations--high blood pressure remains the No. 1 risk factor for death. In 2010 alone, more than nine million people died as a result of high blood pressure. But, the big change came at No. 2, at which smoking and alcohol use replaced child hunger as a risk factor for death. Interestingly, obesity (as measured by body mass index) was the tenth leading cause of death in 1990, but by 2010, it had risen to No. 6. In fact, more than three million people died as a result of obesity in 2010. In some countries, particularly in Latin America, it was actually the No. 1 risk factor.
