Facts and figures day

     Some interesting numbers I looked up, it kind of puts some things into prospective like why we do not need the TSA thugs.

Flu
About 20,000 a year

Murder
About 15,000

CVD 
Almost 1 million Americans die of CVD each year, which adds up to 42% of all deaths.


Smoking
Over 443,000 Americans, over 17 percent of all deaths die due smoking each year. Secondhand smoke kills about 50,000 of them.


Burns
Burn injuries leave 60,000 people hospitalized each year in the United States, and over 5,000 people die from burn-related injuries.

Falling
Here's a shocking fact: More people end up in U.S. emergency rooms because of fall-related injuries than from any other cause.

Car accidents
Car Crash Stats: There were nearly 6,420,000 auto accidents in the United States in 2005. The financial cost of these crashes is more than 230 Billion dollars. 2.9 million people were injured and 42,636 people killed. About 115 people die every day in vehicle crashes in the United States -- one death every 13 minutes.

Now for the big one that seems to be such a worry for us and that we are tripping over ourselves to regulate.

Flying 
About 500 a year out of the millions that fly each day, it is still one of the safest ways to travel but one of the worst if you don't want to be molested sexually.
