Europe Tops in Smoking, Drinking, Obesity

Europe has the world's highest rates of drinking and smoking, and more than half its people are too fat, putting them at high risk of heart disease, cancer and other deadly illnesses.
 
In a report on health in its European Region, the World Health Organisation (WHO) says that while many countries had reduced risk factors for premature death, rates of obesity, tobacco use and alcohol consumption ‘remain alarmingly high’.
 
"Europeans drink and smoke more than anyone else, we are world champions - and it's not a good record," said Claudia Stein, WHO Europe's head of information, evidence, research and innovation.
