interesting fact on suicide deaths vs. deaths from war/murder

On average, worldwide. more people take thier own life than are murdered or killed in war. yet murder and war make all the headlines.

The Big Mac is mightier than the gun!

Hey, don't worry about that guy with a gun. It's those frys and burgers that's dangerous. If the Washington Post was right in 2005, obesity causes about 112,000 American deaths a year.

And they think this is good news. Hey is that cake for me?

My ever-so-humble-but-accurate opinion is my own.

Maybe because the victims of murder and war didn't CHOOSE to end their own lives?
