We are fifth/sixth grade students at Pleasant Hill School in
Palatine. We are studying first aid. What is the most common way
to die, caused by an accident? Please explain. Thank you for
I recently read that about 40,000 people die each year in the U.S.
from automobile accidents so I am sure this is the leading cause of death
by accidents. I also remember that in Texas, more people are guns than
by cars but I'm not sure if its true. Is there another board you could
query? Epidemiology is a field replete with controversy!
