CALCULATION: This compares WORLDWIDE TERRORISM to ONLY US for OTHER causes of DEATHS = SO REAL ODDS ARE EVEN HIGHER OF OTHER CAUSES THAN QUOTED HERE

FACT: 2011 = U.S. Department of State reports 17 U.S. citizens killed worldwide as a result of terrorism including deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq

FACT (Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services) = Reported 180,000 DEATH/YEAR among Medicare patients due to complications from medical errors = JUST Medicare NOT all the others in the entire American public.

FACT: Scientific American (2009) = Preventable medical mistakes KILLED 200,000 Americans in U.S./ YEAR

32,367 automobile accidents in 2011 = 1,904 times more likely to die from a car accident than from a terrorist attack.

CNN = “Since 9/11, foreign-inspired terrorism has claimed about two dozen lives in the United States.

100,000 have been killed in gun homicides

Prescription drugs is even more likely to kill you than a car crash.

Suicide surpassed car crashes = 35.000/YEAR

CDC reports 7,638 deaths from HIV + 45 from syphilis = 452 times more likely to die from risky sexual behavior than terrorism.

National Safety Council reports 6,000 Americans die a year from falls = 353 times more likely to fall to your death doing something idiotic than die in a terrorist attack.

U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration reports that 4,609 workers were killed on the job in 2011 within the U.S. homeland = 271 times more likely to die from a workplace accident than terrorism.

CDC reports 3,177 people died of “nutritional deficiencies” in 2011 = 187 times more likely to starve to death in American than be killed by terrorism.

You’re 9 times more likely to be killed by a law enforcement officer than by a terrorist.

2011 Report on Terrorism from the National Counter Terrorism Center notes that Americans are just as likely to be “crushed to death by their televisions or furniture each year” as they are to be killed by terrorists.

Council on Foreign Relations (2008) = 33 U.S. citizens were killed worldwide by terrorism = Risk of dying from terrorist attacks in 2008 was 1 in 9,138,785 = If the risk of being killed by a terrorist were added to the list, the dot would be so small that it would be hard to see.

Risk of being killed by terrorism in 2008 was 14 times smaller than being killed by fireworks.

Risk of being killed by terrorism compares annual risk of dying:

Car accident 1 in 19,000
Drowning in a bathtub at 1 in 800,000
Dying in a building fire at 1 in 99,000
Struck by lightning at 1 in 5,500,000 = four times more likely to be struck by lightning than killed by a terrorist.

National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism = Report excluding 911 atrocities, fewer than 500 people died in the U.S. from terrorist attacks between 1970 and 2010 = 12.5 on average died per year

Terrorism = Pushes our emotional buttons

Politicians + Media = Blow risk of terrorism out of proportion

FACT: Terrorism is a very unlikely cause of death.
