What You Don't Know About the Deadliest Drugs May Shock You

  1. 1. WHAT YOU DONT KNOW MAY SHOCK YOU! ABOUT THE DEADLISET DRUGS
  2. 2. 0 5000 10000 15000 20000 25000 30000 26,654 16,917 4,681 4,397 Alcohol Deaths Painkiller Deaths Cocaine Deaths Heroin Deaths Still, the death tolls show that the LEGAL DRUGS remain a major public health problem and, according to experts and research- ers, policymakers could do more to curb deaths caused by the two(alcohol and painkillers) of the most deadly drugs. DEATHS IN USA CAUSED BY DRUGS, 2011
  3. 3. 26,654 deaths in 2011 are caused by alcohol-induced problems But that under-counts the number of deaths created by alcohol: when including other causes of death like drunk driving and other accidents, the toll ascends to 88,000 for each year. 76% of those who died from alcohol poisoning are men. 6 people die of alcohol poisoning each day in the us. alcohol is a factor in 40% of violent crimes.
  4. 4. 16,917 deaths in 2011 are caused by Opioid-based prescription painkillers 31% of prescription painkiller-linked overdose deaths in 2011 were also related to benzodiazepines, a legal anti-anxiety drug. Over time, this can damage the heart and lungs because you aren t getting enough air. Opioid use can lower the amount of saliva in your mouth, saliva flushes away bacteria in your mouth that cause tooth decay. Patients taking opioids are at risk of accidental over - dose or death.
  5. 5. 4,681 deaths in 2011 are caused by cocaine Despite its dangers, cocaine use continues to increase likely because users find it so difficult to escape from the first steps taken down the long dark road that leads to addiction. Cocaine can constrict blood vessels in the brain, causing strokes. This can happen even in young people with- out other risk factors for strokes. Cocaine causes seizures and can lead to bizzare or violent behavior. Cocaine increases heart rate and blood pressure while constricting the arteries sup- plying blood to the heart. The result can be a heart attack. Cocaine can also trigger a deadly abnormal heart rhythm called arrhyth- mia. Cocaine can cause sudden overwhelming kidney failure through a process called rhabdomyolysis. In people with high blood pressure, regular cocaine use can accelerate the long-term kidney damage caused by high blood pressure.
  6. 6. 4,397 deaths in 2011 are caused by heroin Most heroin is injected, creating additional risks for the user, who faces the danger of AIDS or other infection on top of the pain of addiction. Heroin and other opiates reduce the action of muscles in the intestines, making constipation a constant problem. This can result in hemorrhoids, anal tissues or damae to the rectum that may require surgery to repair. Heroin slows down the function of the lungs, which is normally the way an overdose kills a person. In fact, a person may stop breathing before the heart stops beating. Heroin abuse has been associated with high levels of protein in the urine, a condition that can lead to kidney failure.
  7. 7. The general point of showing drugs' deadliness in this case isn't to build a perfect rank for how dangerous each drug is. Rather, the purpose is to show that legality doesn't always correlate with safety, so the public and policymakers shouldn't assume that a substance is more dangerous just because it's illegal.
