European and Central Asian countries might face overweight problem by 2030 as a consequence of malnutrition or improper diet, CA-NEWS reports according to the report of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO). The reports says that Europe and Central Asia could face a surge in heart diseases as a result of mass overweight. According to the experts of the FAO, the number of starving people in the Caucasus and Central Asia will drop from 9% to 2% by 2030 and will further decrease to 1% by 2050. At the same time, reduction of consumption of cereals and increase in consumption of meat and milk products in the region may provoke a surge of chronic noncommunicable illnesses risk. "Apart from improper diet, obesity, sickness rate and mortality rate can also be boosted by unhealthy lifestyle patterns, poverty and poor medical treatment. The increase of the risks will exert additional pressure on the healthcare services of the region, especially in the poorest countries of Central Asia,” the report timed to the 28th European Regional FAO Conference says. The Conference started in Baku on April 19.
