BehindTheMedspeak: How likely are you to die from a non-communicable disease?
Above, a graphic that appeared in the June 2, 2012 issue of The Economist, accompanying an article headlined "Squeezing out the doctor: The role of physicians at the centre of health care is under pressure."
Non-communicable diseases (thanks Paul Biba!) include Alzheimer's, asthma, atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes, hypertension, and osteoporosis, among others.
Among the many things I like about The Economist: The date of their online articles matches the date of the dead tree issue in which they appear.
Few — if any — other publications can boast of such consistency.
