When considering men of different ages, a man who reaches the age of 31 sees a slight decrease in the odds of dying to 1 in 598. This shows that while the odds of dying fluctuate depending on age and sex, the overall risk for a 30-year-old man is considerably higher than for a woman of the same age.

Understanding these statistics can provide an insight into the relative risks faced at different stages of life, and the impact of sex on these odds.
However, it's important to note that while these odds might seem alarming, they represent extreme cases and should not detract from the joy and wonder of life.
