Figure 2: Potentially Avoidable Mortality, by Cause of Death, Canada,
1979 and 2008 (Figure 5 in the report)

Note
The charts show a proportional distribution of causes of death. Therefore, an increased proportion of neoplasms
in 2008 does not mean that the rate of death due to neoplasm has actually increased.
