46,471: Drug Overdoses Killed More Americans Than Car Crashes or Guns
Those who don't participate in an activity are unlikely to be threatened by it.
However, the media would have all of us worry about everything...
I found this article by Susan Jones at CNSnews.com:
"In 2013, the most recent year for which data is available, 46,471 people in the United States died from drug overdoses, and more than half of those deaths were caused by prescription painkillers and heroin.
That compares with the 35,369 who died in motor vehicle crashes and 33,636 who died from firearms, as tallied by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention."
