Diabetes Mellitus Type I is characterized by the pancreatic cells no longer or miniscully producing insulin or the production is miniscule. In type II diabetes, cells lose sensitivity to insulin, thereby becoming resilient. Type I diabetes cannot be cured, but type II diabetes can be maintained with a proper diet and exercise. An estimated 1.26 million people have lost their lives to complications with diabetes in 2012, which contributes to about 2.2% of all deaths.

Tuberculosis (TB) is a bacterial infection caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Contraction of TB is airborne, but it is difficult to get. It is one of the leading causes of death for people coupled with HIV. An estimated 1.34 million people died from TB in 2012, contributing to about 2.4% of all deaths.

7. Respiratory Cancers

This class of diseases include lung, tracheal, and bronchial cancers. The main cause of these cancers are pollution by smoking, secondhand smoking, and other carcinogens as a waste byproduct. An estimated 1.39 million people died in 2012 from respiratory cancers which contributes to about 2.4% of all deaths.

​​​​​​6. HIV/AIDS

HIV virus

AIDS is caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) which is transmitted through bodily fluids. HIV enters the body and hijacks T cells which then compromises the immune system. In 2012, about 1.78 million people died due to AIDS. This contributes to about 3.1% of all deaths. It is estimated that over 5000 people become infected every day.

5. Diarrheal Diseases

3. Lower Respiratory Infections (LRI)

Influenza virus

LRI includes influenza, bronchitis, and pneumonia. The flu season is mostly prevalent in the colder half of the year for each hemisphere. The WHO estimates that LRI contributes to about 6.1% of all deaths.

2. Stroke
