Hungary in bottom ranks of WHO health statistics

Hungary is one of the world's unhealthiest countries, US media organization National Public Radio reported (NPR), citing a World Health Organization (WHO) official.

In a Budapest report, NPR talked to Zsófia Pusztai, WHO's national coordinator for Hungary, who said Hungary remains one of EU's and the world's unhealthiest countries, with a very high rate of smoking, alcohol and fatty food consumption among the population that lead to one of the highest mortality rates caused by lung cancer and cardiovascular diseases in the world.

In addition to Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania were cited as having the worst health statistics in the EU. Established in 1948, the WHO celebrates the World Health Day on April 7 each year. (Portfolio)
