I find it surprising that on “The Real Threat to Americans” graph smoking is the leading cause of death. Also that deaths from medical mistakes is even on the graph. I never would have thought that you couldn’t trust the person we pay to help cure us. I’ve seen many commercials of people having lung cancer or different cancers because of smoking. But, I always thought it took a seriously long time to die from it. Never would I have thought that it had the highest death rate, although I am not very surprised that it is on the chart. With all the different crimes and drunk driving accidents I never expected for neither deaths from medical mistakes or smoking related deaths to be on the top of the list.
