More Americans Now Die of Suicide Than Car Crashes

More Americans Now Die of Suicide Than Car CrashesAccording to a new study, suicide is now the leading cause of injury deaths, which means that it kills more Americans than car crashes.

Ian Rockett, a professor of epidemiology at West Virginia University stated,

“Suicides are terribly undercounted; I think the problem is much worse than official data would lead us to believe,”“Suicide is now the first cause of injury deaths, followed by car crashes, poisoning, falls and murder.”

However, the study shows that fewer women die from suicide than men.

Today, the US government launched a program that will focus on suicide prevention with the help of some private groups in Facebook. The program will have $56 million of federal money to help fund suicide prevention programs under the Garrett Lee Smith Memorial Act.
