Most of us prefer not to contemplate how we will die, but we can't help but be intrigued by this 'causes of death' chart. 

The diagram shows which diseases or accidents are most likely to strike you down at certain ages, based on mortality data gathered from 2005 to 2014.

The map, which was created by Nathan Yau at Flowing Data, shows how the death trends vary between the ages of 0 and 100. You can check out the interactive version here

As you can see, the risk of death from chronic diseases like cancer, circulatory causes (including heart disease) and respiratory issues starts to rise at around age 20, and keeps climbing.

The risk of death from external causes such as traffic accidents, meanwhile, starts to shrink around 20. 

While the map shown above shows causes of death for women, there is also a chart for men – the main difference for males being that external causes of death are twice as likely for them as for females. 

Fascinating, if slightly scary, stuff!
