Well then this should be simple for the libs. They should put forward a class action lawsuit against the Grim Reaper. Of course that’s a lawsuit the libs will never be able to win let alone collect from.

Perhaps if we spend trillions of dollars on a Single-Payer health care system, we can stop this from happening. [/s]

And if anti-vaxxers have their way, it may kill even more. Just my opinion.

No one gets out alive. Which is why on this Memorial Day, in addition to remembering our fallen heroes, we would probably do well to reflect on what we’re doing with our own lives, and whether we’re truly living. A friend told me that life is like a roll of toilet paper - the closer to the end you get the faster it goes.

How many people die every year?

The number of deaths varies slightly from year to year but the death rate has hovered around 100% since recorded history with no signs of abatement.

Yes, cardiovascular diseases killed 17.5 million people in 2012, that is 3 in every 10 deaths. Of these, 7.4 million people died of ischaemic heart disease and 6.7 million from stroke.

And of course, every single one of those is really due to second-hand smoke.
