Everything has risks but at what point does doing a job or activity become such a high probability of dead while doing that activity that you would stop. 1%  70%?

I disagree on the comment about this thread not being a mathematical problem. I don't think life insurance is denied for people with certain lifestyles just because their gut instinct says that it's risky. The statistics involved in death are very important.
