The authors of the study estimate that the goal to reduce chronic disease deaths by an additional 2% per year would save 36 million lives by 2015 and 500 million life-years between 2006 and 2015.

Human News aims to devote 1 character to each 40,000 life-years, or 1000 average lives. Thus, the number of characters could be 500 million life-years / 40,000 life-years/character = 12,500 characters. This article has 2700 characters, thus future articles on this topic can total 9800 characters.
