A breakdown of how we died in 1900 and how we do so now. It’s great to see that we’ve almost halved the number of deaths. The huge increases in heart disease and cancer deaths are interesting; I think smoking and diet are probably the main contributors to that.

Some of these prices are incredible. More than a quarter of a million for a kidney, and $157,000 for a liver? Then only $1,525 for a pair of eyeballs…supply and demand in effect I suppose. For those wondering (few, I’m sure), all of your skin would net you ~$23,000, give or take depending on a number of factors.
