Actual Causes of Death in the United States, 2000
Two leading contributors to death in the US in 2000. Tobacco related deaths #1, poor dietary and physical inactivity #2. All this money focused on findings a cure (to date relatively disappointing results as far as cancer and AIDS are concerned despite BILLIONS spent…) and the leading two causes of death are lifestyle related. Prevention. Period.
