Aspirin and Ibuprofen Cause More Human Deaths Than Captive Reptiles

By Erika N. Chen-Walsh


According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC), in 2000, 52 people died of aspirin overdose (49 were suicides and 3 were accidental), and 5 people died of ibuprofen overdose.

In 2000, not one person died as the result of a captive reptile.  Fewer than one death per year occurs as the result of a captive reptile.
