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.

How about of age?
Armonah Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2012
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.
