According to the CDC, most adults die from one of four causes:
cardiovascular/cerebrovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease, cancer, and accidents (CDC 2017).

While these things aren’t always controllable, you can influence the likelihood of contracting the disease, prolong the time before succumbing to them, and greatly decrease the likelihood of dying from them the first time you contract one.
