September 11, 2019

(UPI) – Since 1960, roughly 15 million people may have died by suicide throughout the world with pesticide poisoning, a new study says. Most of these attempts seemed to be spur of the moment events with little or no preparation, according to research published Wednesday in Clinical Toxicology. Many survivors reported planning these attempts in less than 30 minutes, researchers said.
