Nums: How people die …

Interesting infographic from www.informationisbeautiful.net both because of the info and the way the data is visualized.

Bottom line from the full chart:

1) Non-communicable diseases (including cancer)

2) Infectious diseases

3) Cardio-vascular diseases

4) Humanity-inflicted (e.g. murders)

    I think think the chart is great but the bottome line drawn above is incorrect, as cardio-vascular is a subset of the non-communicable diseases
