Why do people die young?

Although factors differ, death is one!, among the young population death plays an important role in the definition of the nation, so, nations with more young population are considered as young nations, and on the other hand, when old people make the larger part of the nation, this nation is considered as an old one.

Here are some interesting facts about death among the young, it comes from the Global Burden of Disease study, whose 2013 installment was released just a few weeks ago.

    most of the data is not surprising except the leading cause of young death being CVA’s in Asia….out of curiosity, what are your thoughts on that?

      Hi, you are right there, it surprised me as well knowing that strokes are high-leading cause of death in Asia at the same time when we were thinking “at lease me” that most of Asians are protected because of “living habits” “sea food” or maybe that I was thinking naive, I can allow myself to think that strokes in Asia have something to do with quality of life, at least in ‘China’ a fetal combination would be: atherosclerosis + high stress, but again this is just me saying so, and I highly most likely incorrect )) thanks for the comment

        thank you for your response….hypertension, smoking, poor air quality esp in China…..the fact that it is the leading cause of death in young people stuck me as odd because CVA’s in young people in the USA are relatively rare.
