Do you ever think about risks? Everyone gets stressed about risks when it comes to doing fun activities that involve the chance of getting hurt, but we never know just how high or low the risk percentage really is. Well, wonder no more because someone has created an infographic that contains all the information you need about daily activities that can put your life at risk.
20. STRESSING OUT
If you usually find yourself stressing out about what might happen every time you try something new, then you arrived at the right place. Today we are going to show exact percentages of the risks you are putting yourself to when trying out new things.
19. OLD AGE
This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but everyone wants to live a happy life and to reach old age. Therefore, you should share the infographics that you are about to see in the upcoming pictures with your friends and family members.
18. RISK FACTOR LIST
Without any further ado, get ready to see detailed infographics about the death rates of some activities that most people enjoy to do and be prepared to get your mind blown!
17. BOXING AND SCUBA DIVING
Who would’ve guessed that boxing and scuba diving are so safe? We thought that getting punched in the face and diving into deep waters would have a higher risk, don’t you think the same?
16. SWIMMING AND RUNNING
Swimming and running are two of the best ways you can spend your free time and luckily, they both are super safe! Just make sure you don’t fall off a cliff when you go out jogging and you will be fine.
15. AMERICAN FOOTBALL AND GRAND PRIX RACING
American football is known for being a dangerous sport, but we never expected it to be this dangerous! On the other hand, Grand Prix racers should make sure to put their seatbelts on every time they go to races.
14. BICYCLING AND BUNGEE JUMPING
As we can clearly see, bungee jumping has a much lower risk percentage. This is quite surprising, but that 1 in 500,000 is still a good reason for us, people who don’t like adrenaline rushes, not to jump off a bridge while tied to a rope.
13. BASE JUMPING
Talking about activities that make adrenaline rush through your body, base jumping deserves a spot on our list. Unfortunately, the risks of base jumping are just way too high for me ever to try it.
12. WINTER SPORTS
Winter sports are really fun, but it’s easy to get hurt while gliding on the snow. However, this infographic makes them seem like some of the most harmless activities that you can enjoy.
11. HANG GLIDING
No wonder hang gliding is so dangerous that 1 in 560 people end up dying when the only thing keeping them alive is a big kite. The next infographic will amaze you!
10. MT. MCKINLEY NATIONAL PARK
The Mt. Mckinley National Park is known to be a hotspot for people who love searching for Bigfoot, but as we can see in this infographic, Mt. Mckinley National Park is not a very safe place.
9. CLIMBING THE HIMALAYAS
There’s a reason the Himalayas are so famous and this infographic shows us just how dangerous it is to climb there. What’s coming next is so scary that it will make you think twice about getting in your car.
It’s scary to think that 1 in 6,700 people get in an accident while driving. Never text and drive folks, you don’t want to become a statistic on this infographic! If you are a smoker, then you really need to check out the next two pictures.
7. MALE SMOKERS
Everyone knows that smoking is terrible, but did you know that 1 in 2 male smokers don’t make it past the age of 70? To make things even scarier, people who smoke are 22 times more likely to get lung cancer. The next infographic is dedicated to female smokers.
6. FEMALE SMOKERS
Just like male smokers, women don’t have it easy as well. However, female smokers are only 12 times more likely to get lung cancer than non-smokers. While this infographic might look better than the one for males, the risk is still way too big!
5. OBESE PEOPLE
Obesity is nothing to joke about. People are dying because of it left and right and we need to teach kids that just how dangerous it can be. The government should put more focus on introducing sports in the lives of children because obese kids between the ages of 5 and 14.9 have a double risk of mortality than non-obese kids.
4. DANCE PARTIES
Have you ever heard the term of a “killer party”? Well, it looks like dance parties can actually kill people and there is a 1 in 100,000 chance that a night out clubbing can turn to something terrific.
3. COMPUTER GAMES
Will the fact that 1 in 100 million people die from playing computer games make you lay off the Xbox One any time soon? Yeah, I didn’t think so. Computer games are just way too fun to ever consider the risk of playing too much.
2. EXPLORING THE WORLD
Did the infographics that you saw today make you think twice about going out and exploring the world? Or will you keep living life on the edge and enjoy every chance you get to try something new?
1. SITTING ON THE BENCH
Even though sitting on the bench might be the safer choice, it’s not any fun. Therefore, we advise people to live their lives to their full but to make sure only to take calculated risks.
