Global Strategy on Nutrition deals with the non-communicable diseases considered the most important risks such as high blood pressure, high concentrations of cholesterol in the blood, inadequate intake of fruit and vegetables, overweight or obesity, physical inactivity and tobacco use. Unhealthy diets and physical inactivity are thus among the leading causes of the major non-communicable diseases, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer which contribute substantially to the global burden of disease, death and disability. Other diseases related to diet and physical inactivity such as dental caries and osteoporosis are widespread causes of morbidity. The burden of mortality, morbidity, and disability attribute to non-communicable diseases which are currently the greatest and continuing to grow in developing countries.
