I was attending a conference in Washington, D.C., and the question tossed out to the room was this: What is the leading cause of accidental deaths in the U.S.?
That is an easy one – traffic accidents. Or so I thought, and I was wrong. Since 2009, traffic deaths have taken a backseat to accidental poisoning as the leading killer. While many are due to alcohol the one on the rise is overdose of prescription drugs.
