That’s right, currently, more people kill themselves than die in car crashes in the United States. A new study from the American Journal of Public Health has revealed a startling truth that many people are downright refusing to believe.
In the last decade suicide has increased by 15% while deaths from car accidents have decreased by 25%. Cars are safer, and people are more miserable.
According to the study:
“Suicide ranked first as a cause of injury mortality, followed by motor vehicle traffic crashes, poisoning, falls, and homicide. Females had a lower injury mortality rate than did males.”
Not to worry, I’m sure doctors have a solution up their sleeves. More anti-depressants!
