  1. Figure 3 labels switched

    The article states that "Figure 3 shows the percentage of hysterectomized women based on all women with uterine fibroids is highest in the USA with 29.1%..." but Figure 3 does not actually show this because the labels of "Women with a diagnosis of uterine fibroids" and "Women without a diagnosis of uterine fibroids" appear to have been switched.
