The unhealthiest countries in the world have been revealed – and it makes for grim reading for Europe.

Research from the World Health Organisation (WHO) highlights the countries whose residents need to change their lifestyle in order to lower their risk of developing life-threatening illnesses.

The countries were ranked according to alcohol consumption, tobacco consumption and obesity prevalence.

Eastern Europe emerged as the most unhealthy region in the world, with 9 of the 10 top spots on the list occupied by countries in the territory.

The research also found non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes are now the primary cause of premature deaths worldwide, killing over 36 million people each year.

These deaths are caused by unhealthy lifestyle choices such as drinking, smoking and an unbalanced diet.

The United Nations health agency has now put pressure on governments around the world to do more to tackle the global health crisis.
