What an ignorant headline! Clearly wrong, as Americans are not all equally exposed to either risk. Those who do not use opioids have ZERO risk of dying from them and those who do not ride in cars (an admittedly small fraction) have ZERO risk of dying in those. This kind of sloppy writing is exactly why statistical information is so distrusted. For shame. It would be so easy and correct to say “More Americans Die of Opioid Overdoses than Car Crashes” Why mangle it so? Dumb, dumb, dumb.

“Americans have a greater chance of dying of an overdose than in a car crash”–well, not if they just kiss their fathers enough. The pheromone that cures opioid addiction in 8 seconds is right there on the facial skin surface of every older man. The pheromone acts like “family therapy on chewing gum” if you just wipe the lipid pheromone off the man’s face and then give it to a drug addict. The cure for opioid addiction is not only quick, there are no withdrawal symptoms. Everybody ask FDA to allow us to test this pheromone among drug addicted Americans: FDA IND application #138202.

I’m sure they intended otherwise, but if you flip that statement around: “Heroin use is about as dangerous as driving.”
