According to worldlifeexpectantcy.com, the top 15 causes of death are (in the USA):

1)Heart disease
2)Cancer
3)Stroke
4)Chronic lung disease
5)accidents
6)Alzheimer's
7)diabetes
8)Influenza and pneumonia
9)nephritis/kidney disease
10)blood poisoning
11)suicide
12)liver disease
13)hypertension/renal
14)Parkinson's disease
15) homicide

Surprised at the statistics, or is none of this new to you? What I am surprised at, is that suicide is higher than homicide, and that homicide is at the bottom of this list! Heart disease as number one, seriously? Although, this doesn't surprise me.... but isn't it silly our society is taking so many measures to try to protect ourselves in every way possible, except health-wise?

Thoughts?

Wait wait wait, why do you think homicide would be higher? Honestly, do you think the US is one big 80s slasher film?

The number one cause of death is breathing, everyone who has ever attempted it has eventually been found dead.

homicide is low because we're allowed to protect ourselves!

The reason suicide is so high is because of the finacial state the world is in and bullying....pretty sad really....

Suicides are so high because it's so damn easy to get guns in the USA.
