A true romantic 22 6, 4:10pm

@Steeeve I'm not sure those numbers should be compared though... The truth is we don't die that easily nowadays so yeah heart disease and cancer "kill" a lot of people just because we don't really die much of anything else anymore. But most people dying from those things could be labeled as "dying of old age"... Which is quite different than getting shot with a gun or getting hit by a car while still in your twenties or thirties. When you say "sugar and fat kill people", it means that should'nt have they eaten that much sugar/fat, they would have survived 2 or 3 years before dying of something else (and even then, sugar and fat are just risk factors, some heart attacks seem just anavoidable), but when you get shot at 20, you might have lived much much longer.
