This one is terrifying to me. Choking on a pork chop and slowly dying with no one around has to be one of the worst ways to go.
3) Overdose on Prescription Drugs
Listen to your doctor and pharmacist. Read the label carefully. Don’t take more than you’re supposed to. This sounds simple but thousands of people die every year from overdosing on their prescription medications every year. Heath Ledger is a tragic example of this.
4)Driving While Tired

6) Walking On Train Tracks
This has to be one of the dumbest ways to die. First, don’t walk on train tracks unless you’re shooting an album cover for your folk band, Second, if you do find yourself having to walk on train tracks for god’s sake stay vigilant. Trains can travel up to 100mph and often times they seem to come out of nowhere.

8) Allergic Reaction
Many people find out they’re allergic to something only after they’ve had a severe reaction to it.

People who complain about these millennials who text and drive are often guilty of doing the same thing themselves. I’ve even caught my mom doing it. Keep your eyes on the road and off your phone.
