38,680 died from car accidents in all of the US in 2020.
600,000 cancer deaths.
38,000 traffic fatalities is certainly a significant number. As are the additional 2.2 million injured in traffic crashes yearly. Most, if not all, crashes are avoidable. Communities, states, and the federal government have had a hard push on traffic safety for over 30 years. Deaths per million miles travelled are decreasing, indicating mitigation efforts are successful.
600,000 cancer deaths is an even bigger number. Decades of government funded and privately funded cancer research and we're still trying to figure that monster out. Through better prevention, treatment, and care, cancer mortality rate is decreasing, 31% since 1991.
COVID deaths as of today are at 665,000. Climbing at 2,600+ per day. Rapidly approaching last winter's peak of daily deaths. One little thing has been proven very effective at preventing its transmission and reducing its severity if transmitted. Actually 2 little things 30 days apart. Of these 3 forms of death, one could reasonably be drastically reduced by the end of the year. If folk would quit bitching about their rights and get the shots.
Those that are already dying of something else.
We're all dying of something. From the moment we take our first breath we're headed toward the grave. What's your point? ---- the elderly? Will you feel the same way in 20 years?
