Stats On How I Will Probably Die

Sorry for the grim title but I just discovered this great infographic featuring statistics of how men in the United States will die in 2008. There are various causes covered including suicide, heatstroke, and electrocutions. The data was collected from the CDC’s WONDER Database. WONDER stands for Wide-ranging Online Data for Epidemiologic Research which is a collection of data that’s available to public health professionals and the public at large, boasting a wide array of public health information.

Thanks to this it looks I don’t have to worry about shark attacks (1), foreign objects left behind during surgery (2), or fireworks accidents (5).

  2. So heart disease is the top killer in the world, which this chart shows. Except for genetic disorders, most heart disease comes from high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Unhealthy cholesterol is only found in foods made of animal products. Why is it that our government makes things like cannabis illegal, while animal product foods and killer sharks remain mostly unregulated?

  10. Since then, some policy experts have advocated aligning the Medicare and Social Security eligibility ages through a gradual phase-in that would spare those close to retirement.The idea gained new life when Republicans won the House in 2010, and Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., embraced it. Obama indicated he was open to it during budget talks with Republicans in 2011. But the president quickly retreated, and now says he’s not willing to decide upon cutting Medicare unless Congress agrees to raise taxes relating to the wealthy.
