Death chart by Armonah Death chart by Armonah
Odds of dying: 100%

A couple of things to note here:
- Bees are more dangerous than sharks. Statistically speaking.
- The numbers apply to the United States.
- They may not be accurate. Some sources were rather dubious and even self-contradictory. For me, this was more about making a visually appealing infographic than something that's 100% accurate, though I tried my best on both accounts. Whether or not I actually succeeded I'll leave up to everyone else to decide.

If you have any suggestions or spot inaccuracies, feel free to leave a comment.

Eventually we're all gonna die anyway, so you might as well enjoy life for as long as it lasts =P

For what it's worth this infographic doesn't take demographics into account, and most people don't die until they reach old age.

That's kind of a tricky subject, as "dieing of old age" isn't a medical term. Old people make up a large portion of the deaths related to cancer, stroke and heart disease (and of course alzheimer's) in this chart. :)

Funny how people typically fear.. falls, violence, natural disasters, vehicle accidents, drowning, fires, and animal attacks, when over 80% of deaths are caused by medical conditions. Shouldn't hypochondria be the most common phobia because of this?

Well, hypochondria is pretty common =P
Not as common as fear of spiders or fear of the dark, but still.

There's one thing to take into account with the deaths due to same-level falls, cancer and heart disease though, and that's that it mostly happens to the elderly. The chart doesn't include "death of old age" (and it can't, because it's not a medical term) but most of the people who die to these things are over 70.
