Death In Perspective

New estimate of how many Americans die each year because they don't have health insurance - 45,000 a year. That's up from the already staggering 18,000 we have been hearing.

Since the study seems sound (Harvard researchers), I was moved to crank out a PowerPoint slide. Now that's taking action!

Take a look:

Sources: Afghanistan; Iraq; Vehicle crashes; No health insurance

SEEMS like we should do something about that yellow bar.

p.s. Want to hear a really scary death statistic? 440,000/year from smoking.
