Georgia sits in the ninth position for the highest mortality rate in the world. Their rate is 12.816 deaths per 1000 people in a year. The World Health Organization has given further details on the leading causes of death in this country. They are very similar to the rest of Europe’s causes of death, namely cancer, respiratory, circulatory, and digestive diseases. Included in the causes are also injuries caused to people as well as poisoning. Their death rate for people under the age of 65 has increased quite a bit since 2000. The leading cause of death being circulatory system disease and cancers.
They also have pretty big risk factors in Georgia which contribute to this high death rate. That includes smoking, alcohol abuse, and also obesity. There is also a significant concern in Georgia about dietary issues that are causing people to die more often. These concerns are high blood pressure, a high body mass index, and of course, smoking. Certain countries worldwide have a great mortality rate because of the lifestyle that is lived in that country, such as in Russia with the alcohol abuse problem. That is something that all countries should look into and re-evaluate to bring these numbers down.
