On the other hand, people living in America have a1 in 103 chance of dying in a motor vehicle accident. The National Safety council took the historical data of both cause of deaths in the USA and after comparison, they have come on to this conclusion. The national council said in a press conference that the nation is getting filled with the problem of drug addiction and the number of addicts is increasing every year which is causing a more severe problem than[people imagine.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Fentanyl is that drug which is responsible most of the deaths happened because of a drug overdose and use of this drug is increasing among addicts. The council recommended that there shall be given proper training to opioid prescribers and they think there shall be more centers where the addition of such people can be cured.
