CDC Announce Disturbing, New Leading Cause Of Death For Under 50s
Young Americans are now more likely to die by overdosing on drugs than by any other cause of death – with overdoses killing more in a year than were ever killed annually by HIV, war, gun violence or car accidents.
Preliminary CDC data published by the New York Times shows drug overdose deaths surged 19 percent to at least 59,000 last year.
That means that for the first time drug overdoses are the leading cause of death for Americans under 50 years old.
The disturbing new data lays bare the bleak state of America’s opioid addiction crisis fueled by deadly manufactured Big Pharma drugs like fentanyl.
