Causes of death across Israel are changing because of Population Increase, Life Expectancy rise and Living Standard.On this below article we provide graphical representation of major causes of death in Israel.

Highlights of Israel BMI and Diet Compositions

Comprehensive data on food supply and consumption is published by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Data was analyzed by The Global Graph and is published in these below Highlights, Graphs and Tables (Data Quality & definitions)

  • As per United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), average person in Israel gets their caloric supply from :
    • Carbohydrates : 61.79%61.79%
    • Fat : 48.64%48.64%
    • Animal protein : 10.33%10.33%
    • Plant protein : 7.94%7.94%
  • 28.70% increase in caloric supply : Currently Israel gets 3610/kilocalories per person per day worth of caloric supply when compared to 2805/kilocalories per person per day in Year 1961
  • Cereals & Grains, Oils & Fats and Meat are three major diet compositions in Israel
  • Wheat, Rice and Maize are three major Cereal preferences in Israel
  • National and World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations on vegetable intake is to range between 200-250g per day and in Israel average intake is 477.40 grams
  • Bananas, Apples and Grapes are three major Fruit Types Intake in Israel
  • National and World Health Organization (WHO) typically set a guideline of 200g Fruit Intake per day and in Israel average Fruit intake is 325.56grams

  • 65.30% of population is suffering from obesity and this trend is continously increasing from last few years
  • Average Male BMI in Israel is in the range of obese and Average Female BMI is in range of obese (BMI = Body Mass Index - The WHO define a BMI <=18.5 as 'underweight'; 18.5 to 25 as 'normal/healthy'; 25.0 to 30.0 as 'obese')


Breakdown of the average per capita intake of cereals by specific cereal-based commodity types, measured in kilocalories per person per day. This figure measures the primary equivalent of all food products derived from a given commodity (e.g. "wheat" represents the primary equivalent of its derived products). Data refers to cereal food supply at the consumer level but does not account for consumer wastage in

Cancer Analysis


0.74% of Israel population was suffering from cancer i.e. 61035 people (average of years 2011-2016). Highest number of cancer patients deaths were recorded due to Colon & rectum cancer (Count : 1646) and Breast cancer was also concerning with 1173 deaths in a year. In last few years it has been observed that, people suffering from Esophageal cancer have 1% of survival chance.Israel was really successful in diagnosing Testicular cancer where 98% of people were cured.Highest number of cancer patients i.e. 28655 people were of age group 70+ year olds.In 2016, 10017 were suffering from Colon & rectum cancer out of which 1646 people were dead. This means 16.43% death rate of people suffering from Colon & rectum cancer. This below data represents major cancer types in Israel and number of deaths due to particular cancer types :
