Priorities

Mortality statistics I’ve stumbled across in my research tonight:

  • Fatal poisonings are about twice as common as homicides.
  • Fatal falls are almost twice as common as fatal poisonings.
  • Suicide kills slightly more people than motor vehicle accidents, but twice as many as fatal falls.
  • And of course, suicide is ten times as common as homicide.
