ABSTRACT

To the Editor:—  The Analysis of deaths among physicians in the United States for the year 1947 (The Journal, January 24, p. 252) prompted a similar analysis of British figures. We had in mind the possible effects of the more even tenor of English life and the effects of the "austerity" on those inclined to excess weight with its attendant dangers and diseases.The accompanying graph was constructed from an analysis of the 3,040 deaths during 1947 referred to in The Journal and from 391 deaths of British physicians culled from the obituary columns of the Lancet from July 1945 to December 1947. In only about half of the British physicians listed were the ages at death stated, and it is possible that this group is not representative.For comparison the British figures were recalculated to show what they would have been had the total deaths been raised from 391
