Report: You Stand 1 Chance in 179 of Being Murdered; FBI ‘Buried’ Data

1 in 5 people will die by heart disease.

That's 37x more probable.

It's amazing how just simple changes to lifestyle mitigate risks of heart disease. Same applies to murder.

The mathematics in this article are mind-boggling. How can 24,500 homicides in 2020 for 332 million people in the USA equal 1:179? Am I missing something?
