On page 1238 in the Results section of the Abstract, “(400 000 deaths; 16.6%)” should be “(365 000 deaths; 15.2%).” On page 1239, in the third column, in the first paragraph, “23 (22.3%)” should be “23 (22.03%).” On page 1240, in Table 2, “400 000 (16.6)” deaths for “poor diet and physical inactivity” in 2000 should be “365 000 (15.2).” A dagger symbol should be added to “alcohol consumption” in the body of the table and a dagger footnote should be added with “In 1990 data, deaths from alcohol-related crashes are included in alcohol consumption deaths, but not in motor vehicle deaths. In 2000 data, 16 653 deaths from alcohol-related crashes are included in both alcohol consumption and motor vehicle death categories.” Also on page 1240, third column, fifth paragraph, “18 539 deaths” should be “19 358 deaths.” On page 1241, first column, first paragraph, “69 989 deaths” should be “70 808 deaths.” On page 1242, first column, first paragraph, “remaining 270 deaths” should be “remaining 359 deaths” and in the second paragraph, “resulted in 14 578 deaths” should be “resulted in 14 478 deaths.” Also on page 1242, third column, second paragraph, “roughly 400 000 deaths” should be “roughly 365 000 deaths.”
