  2. This sounds a lot like the argument that I’ve been making for quite sometime now.

  3. Thank you, we should be more aware and keep safe from that situations.

  4. Why didn’t they put this list in descending order so it was clear how low prescription drug death is? And how high others are. And why no commas in the numbers? It doesn’t do what it needs to do as all the numbers look…. just big. Also, deaths from ibuprofen should be right next to deaths from prescription drugs, 15,000, for comparison. Imho.

  5. I keep reading anti-opioid stories that show that the previous (wrong) numbers were apparently not fear-mongering enough: the new trend is to scream that “200,000 people have died from opioids since 1999!!”
    Even if this # is true, which I vehemently doubt, the combined deaths from heart disease, obesity, tobacco, cancer, & medical errors killed ONE HUNDRED TIMES as many LAST YEAR. How in the bloody HELL are opioids a “crisis” or an “epidemic,” outside of pathologically lying propagandists’ PR releases?

  6. This is heartbreaking, and needs to stop, but thank you so much for doing this, excellent job, I appreciate being able to access so much info all in one place like this. I’m not very tech literate, so this makes it much easier for me to not only access, but share as well,

  7. I hope they really found a peace that they deserve.

  8. WHY are we not holding these physicians legally responsible? Seems to me but for the fact that the physician decided to place regulations before patients care the physician might as well pulled the trigger isn’t that involuntary manslaughter or at best wrongful death? Maybe it would make the next physician think twice about ignoring a pain patient if a few were held accountable.

  9. I’m now afraid of lawnmowers; thanks for including that.

  10. Oh, & I love the fact that you stuck “spontaneous combustion” at the end of the list!

  11. Thank you, Steve. I really wish facts were more important than hysteria these days, but clearly that’s not the case.

  12. I hope that they all have found a peace that they were unable to find here.
