An Aug. 16 article incorrectly stated that 70 percent of deaths worldwide are due to chronic disease, and that 1.87 of the 2.3 million deaths in the U.S. last year were due to chronic disease. The article also incorrectly stated that the CDC estimates that the U.S. will have 100 million diabetics in 2020.

Seventy percent of deaths in the U.S. are due to chronic disease, with the pattern of increasing deaths due to chronic disease seen in other countries. In 2014, approximately 1.8 of the 2.6 million deaths in the United States were due to chronic disease. The CDC estimates that the U.S. could have up to 100 million diabetics in 2020.
