Geneva: The 66th World Health Assembly Monday approved a plan for preventing and controlling non-communicable diseases, such as illnesses caused by alcohol consumption, smoking and obesity, which account for 60 percent of the deaths in the world and 69 percent of deaths in Latin America.The plan sets nine new voluntary goals for preventing and controlling these illnesses, but the assembly urged member states to establish programs to deal with risk factors related to bad eating habits and lack of exercise.Unhealthy habits and behaviours can lead to cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, such as hypertension, diabetes and cancer, causing 36 million deaths a year, the WHO said.
