About 90,000 people die each year in the U.S. doing things like walking down the street, driving a car, playing sports, climbing mountains, hunting, skiiing, diving, riding ATV's, bicycling, motorcycling, boating, swimming, horse riding and parachuting. More people used to die from these "every day" things before harm reduction products were developed such as: seat belts, air bags, helmets, better parachutes and life preservers.
Technology has now brought us products like electronic cigarettes and low-risk, smoke-free tobacco alternatives that could save not just 90,000 lives, but over 440,000 lives every year, by significantly reducing the health risks of smoking.
