Taking the drug ecstasy is no more dangerous than riding a horse ...The professor said horse-riding accounted for about 10 deaths a year and was associated with more than 100 road accidents ...Ecstasy use is linked to around 30 deaths a year, up from 10 a year in the early 1990s. Fatalities are caused by massive organ failure from overheating or the effects of drinking too much water.
Eighty-eight cyclists killed so far [September] in 2012 [in UK]
