The #1 Reason People Die Early by Country

I found this video fascinating. They use a metric called "years of life lost", which counts when people die in contrast to when they might hope to die. For example, if you SHOULD live to 86, but die at the age of 6 due to malaria, then your years of life lost is 80. It is interesting to see how dramatically the cause of death changes from county to country. Take a look.
