Accident and Emergency

You're much more likely to die from illness or old age (at the moment!) but it's still worth minimising your chances of dying from the unexpected.

About 50 people die every day in the UK of "external causes" - accidents, falls and assaults - which gives you a one in a million chance of not making it to tomorrow. Coincidentally (or maybe because of it's applicable size) this is also the definition of a micromort.
