Do You Know How You Gonna Die? This Chart Will Show You How


This Chart Shows You How You’ll Probably Die

Wondering how you’re most likely to die? Skip the online quizzes and morbid daydreaming, and sate your curiosity with this grim government chart.

Influenza and pneumonia make the top ten for every age group except the tiniest babies, who have worse things to worry about. (What have we said about not pooh-poohing the flu shot?) For young adults, those health-related causes are still important, but unintentional injuries top them.
