Do not run for the hills. University of Pennsylvania researchers say it?s a fantasy that small rural towns are safer than urban hellholes after analyzing death certificates from across the country. ?Contrary to popular belief, cities do happen to be the safest place you can live,? said lead author Dr. Sage Myers. While homicide rates are higher in U.S. cities, deaths from unintentional injuries vastly eclipse the overall murder rate. The risk of death from an injury is more than 20 percent higher in rural counties, as a result of shootings, drownings, vehicle accidents, falls and other accidents. [Source]
