Abstract

Nutritional transition from Homo sapiens to Homo economicus and finally to Homo modestis needs substantial changes in the outlook of Western society, governments and industry as well as in the methods of health education that can cause changes in the health behaviour for prevention of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) . The causes of death among Homo sapiens, Homo erectus and Huntergatherer societies were mainly injury and accidents, whereas among modern men 80% of deaths occur due to NCDs. It is interesting that the pandemic of tobacco, alcohol and ultra-processed food as well as drinks by the industry and the governments among Homo economicus countries is not yet realized by many in Western societies but some progress is being made, albeit on a relatively small scale. Therefore, the sale and promotion of tobacco, alcohol, and ultra-processed food and drink (unhealthy commodities), transnational corporations are major drivers of global epidemics of deaths due to NCDs
