Don't be lazy . . . Even a simple tip over at a stop can lead to a head injury. Get in the habit of wearing it all the time and then it's no longer a hassle.

According to the WHO, 1.2M due to urban air pollution and 3.2M due to sedentary lifestyle complications. Pretty sad . . . Something as simple as promoting walking and biking could really change that.

1.24M in 2010.
Don't exaggerate to further your agenda. Yes, it's still a tremendous loss which could and should be reduced greatly.
