The Real Death Toll is unbelievable.

Suicide kills more people each year than road traffic accidents in most European countries, the World Health Organization is warning. And globally, suicide takes more lives than murder and war put together, says the agency in a call for action.

Obviously, the war we fight is not against flesh and blood!

230,000 deaths a year for war seems like a really low number. I have to admit a bit of skepticism about those figures. Although, I don't imagine "New Scientist" is prone to exaggeration.

And the figures actually came from the WHO.
