Causes of death across Russia 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 Russia.

Highlights of Russia 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 Russia gets their caloric supply from :
    • Carbohydrates : 64.59%64.59%
    • Fat : 30.72%30.72%
    • Animal protein : 7.26%7.26%
    • Plant protein : 6.03%6.03%
  • 8.59% increase in caloric supply : Currently Russia gets 3361/kilocalories per person per day worth of caloric supply when compared to 3095/kilocalories per person per day in Year 1961
  • Cereals & Grains, Oils & Fats and Sugar are three major diet compositions in Russia
  • Wheat, Rye and Rice are three major Cereal preferences in Russia
  • National and World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations on vegetable intake is to range between 200-250g per day and in Russia average intake is 311.07 grams
  • Apples, Oranges & Mandarines and Bananas are three major Fruit Types Intake in Russia

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
