The great danger to Ontarians today

From the Globe and Mail:

Nearly two-thirds of all unintentional visits to hospital resulted from falls last year, according to CIHI figures. That is drastically higher than the next leading cause, motor vehicle crashes, which only accounted for 10 per cent of all hospital visits.

And what they are talking about is people falling from ladders doing chores around the house.

This is one of those things you never would think of if someone didn't check the facts systematically.
