>>86304846>You could die any time.
You could but it's statistically unlikely unless you're very old or already sick.>You could get struck by lightning.
Chance this year: 1 in 960,000
Chance in your lifetime: 1 in 12,000
Chance of dying from it: 1 in 300,000
but note also that as population rises globally, these figures might already be out of date.>You could trip and fall down the stairs.
Falling down stairs is fairly likely. Based on the number of stairs you climb each year and how you classify a fall, it's probably quite close to 1.
Just the fatalities (based on 16 year old CDC data):
this year: 1 in 210,640
your lifetime*: 1 in 2,739
*life expectancy has probably increased in the past 16 years, but it's declining for white Americans at the moment - because of cheeseburgers and generally poor life choices, despite being one of the richer groups in the union>you could get hit by a drunk driver.
again, same 16 year old CDC data, working for fatalities only
this year: 1 in 46,901
lifetime: 1 in 610
this one is almost certainly different - unless you live somewhere totally insane, improvements to road use and combination of incentives to drive slower and penalties for not doing so have probably increased your chances of surviving quite a bit>chance of dying from heart disease in the US, 2015, CDC data
1 in 4
that is, 1 in 4 deaths in the US right now is down to people gorging themselves on cheeseburgers, smoking**, drinking**, not getting any cardio
**figures don't differentiate between people who had eg lung, bowel, liver cancer, hepatitis, stroke, or other comorbidities - it only counts those where heart disease was the major contributory factor; complex co-morbidity doesn't make for a pleasant life, and most people who die of heart disease are likely to suffer disease of other major organs as well, as a result either of lifestyle or of living with disease
