  • Fewer than 0.1% of adults in the United Kingdom adhere to the U.K. Government’s Eatwell Guide for a healthy, balanced diet.
  • Adults could add nearly 9 years of life expectancy by switching from an unhealthy diet to the diet outlined in the U.K.’s Eatwell Guide, a U.K. Biobank study has shown. 
  • Those who already follow the ‘median’ diet in the U.K., which only partially follows the Eatwell Guide recommendations, could gain around 3 years in life expectancy by making the full switch to a healthier diet. 
  • The study authors are calling for long-term action to be taken to enable more adults to eat healthily in order to reduce the burden of disease from poor diet. 

Poor diet and lack of physical activity are “leading global risks to health,” according to the World Health Organization (WHO)Trusted Source.
