Principle Cause of Mortality by Country

Add caption
The Week provides this interactive site with the most common causes of death by country.

The more developed world tends to have people live to an age when heart disease is the major cause.

In France, Spain, Portugal and some other European countries, throat and lung cancer seem to be the major causes -- smoking?

Sub-Saharan Africa and Thailand show the effects of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

TB is the problem in some countries, perhaps due to the compromised immune systems in Africa, but what is the problem in Bolivia?

Cirrhosis of the Liver in Mexico -- alcohol abuse?

Liver cancer in China????
