The diets of people living in developing countries are becoming more unhealthy leading to an increase in non-communicable diseases or NCDs.

That's according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

Sedentary lifestyles, inactivity and the availability of junk food are all contributing to a growth of NCDs, like obesity, heart disease and diabetes.

Anna Lartey is the Director of FAO's Nutrition Division.

May Yaacoub asked her about the increase of diseases in the developing world.
