Preliminary Death data for 2008 CDC Report

So many people are astounded when I tell them how many people die per year, per day, (on average, over 2 million per year, around 6,000 per day in the U.S. alone) yet the topic remains taboo. All of these deaths carry survivors; some decedents only have a few survivors, others have hundreds. If you know a survivor, please tell them about this website. You could help them in ways they (and you) never knew you could. I would be happy to mail business cards to anyone in need.

On December 9, 2010, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) reports the following preliminary data:

July 1 estimates – total 2008 U.S. Population 304,059,724

The preliminary number of deaths in the United States for 2008 was 2,473,018

The 10 leading causes of death in 2008 were as follows:

1          Diseases of heart (heart disease)
2          Malignant neoplasms (cancer)
3          Chronic lower respiratory diseases
4          Cerebrovascular diseases (stroke)

Begin Here and this website were created to help these survivors…and those in the future. Peace…
