Visualizing Bloodtests

"Visualizing Bloodtests" is a visualization by David McCandless that breaks down bloodtest results in order to make it more understandable. The visualization emphasizes the level of risk that the subject of the bloodtest has of heart disease and gives advice about how a change in behavior (like eating better or quitting smoking) can reduce the patient’s risk. By comparing visually the subjects results with the normal values the visualization becomes easier to understand than traditional results.
