110 = 200?
5 years ago
i believe each one is a 100 year segment
so 1800-1900 1910-2010
100+100=200

I GUESS I SHOULD HAVE BEEN MORE SPECIFIC

This graph should be more specific, for all we know this can be a tally of people that only died in the years 1900 and 2010.

what does it all mean
5 years ago
it means weve cured a lot of diseases that were killing people but there is always going to be a cause for death so im not sure what exactly the message this graph is supposed to be conveying? which cause of death would be social acceptable to be the leader of this chart?

what it means is that people, now that they have the luxury of health, are killing themselves more. suicide didn't even make the 1900 list.

The most noteworthy detail I noticed is the huge increase in cancer. I wonder if it's that we live longer so more people get it or if it's that our environment is more toxic now.

I thought 'war' would have made up a larger chunk of the 1900's list, more than cancer at least.

War might go under the category of "accident"

well it's good to see we're having less "accidents" despite texting
