    CVD
    + morbidity (ageing population and obesity), - mortality (awareness and medical technology)

    CANCER
    Skin
    - morbidity (awareness, protection measures), + mortality (depleting ozone, deaths now from people who got it decade(s) ago)

    Breast
    + morbidity (more people getting checked, a little bit because of ageing population, contraversial whether the pill is a contributing factor), - mortality (awareness, early detection and treatment)

    Lung
    male
    - morbidity, - mortality

    female
    + morbidity, + mortality

    Respiratory Disease
    All (except asthma)
    - morbidity, + mortality

    asthma

    Diabetes
    + morbidity, slight + mortality

    Injury
