In spite of the recent turbulence in the banking world and its effects on the economy of many countries, food availability and living standards in the industrialized countries of the west are vastly superior to the conditions of many people living in the developing countries of Africa and Asia and many other parts of the world. Furthermore most of us would agree that living standards have improved in those industrialized countries over the last century, yet nutritional problems still exist and a recent study of deprivation and mortality in the UK found no significant change in the strength of the relation between the start and end of the 20th century. The objective of the study was to examine the geographical relationship between mortality and deprivation in England and Wales at the start of the 20th and 21st centuries and explore the evidence for the strengthening or weakening of relationships over that time. The 20th century saw dramatic improvements in patterns of mortality. Age and sex specific mortality rates declined across all ages. Life expectancy has risen from 46 and 50 for men and women in the 1900s to 77 and 81 respectively in 2001. These changes are linked to major changes in the cause of death. Modern causes of death are dominated by cancer, ischemic heart disease and stroke. In the 1900s classification of mortality was less well organized; cancer and respiratory disease were important, but infectious and parasitic diseases accounted for nearly 20% of deaths.
