A new Canadian study takes a novel approach to heart disease research looking into “the causes of the causes” of the disease.

Researchers from McMaster University in Hamilton gathered data from nearly 154-thousand people from 628 communities in 17 countries.

They were looking to explain why certain communities have higher rates of smoking, obesity, Type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol.

The study found that as a country’s wealth grows, its people often start to acquire poor health habits — such as eating more processed and fried foods, and becoming less physically active.
