Causes of Mortality for Women

The National Center for Health Statistics last released data on what women, per age group, die of in 2004. The provisional data for 2011 is now available for review on line. http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/deaths.htm
In the last tabulation if you were between 19 and 64 years old you are most likely to diet of malignant neoplasms. If you are 65 years or older you are most likely to die of diseases of the heart. If you are younger than age 19 then you are most likely to die of an accident or unintentional injury. They do list the top ten conditions that cause mortality in women, it's interesting to browse and think about what health screenings could help you prevent these conditions. As we in the US move to Universal Health Care coverage, those who haven't had screening tests such as paps or mammograms need to get right in for those examinations.
