Guns aren't the only things killing cops

The public does not realize—in fact, police themselves may not realize—that the dangers police officers are exposed to on a daily basis are far worse than anything on "Law and Order."

"Police officers are exposed to danger from so many different elements—many of them unexpected—that they are dying not just on the job, but for the job," says University at Buffalo epidemiologist John Violanti, PhD, an expert on police culture, psychological stress, illness and mortality. And they are dying younger than the rest of us. A previous Violanti study found that on average, the life expectancy of  was significantly lower than the U.S. male population—a result, he suggests, of the exceptionally high and protracted degree of job-related stress.

In Violanti's latest book, "Dying for the Job: Police Work Exposure and Health" (Charles C. Thomas Pub. Ltd, 2014), he and several other authors from the National Institute of Occupational Health and Safety, Centers for Disease Control, explore these unusual health risks. It's not a pretty picture.

    Well said, I too agree with your point. Police job is not a simple task. Many cops do not die because they die on the job hours, but they die for the job. I truly liked reading your article. Your support for the police is appreciable. Do share such interesting contents ...

Hi guys,
My name is Benjamin and I wish to say that when I speak with http://www.floridagunclassifieds.com/ they informed me that the firearm is in its unique manufacturing unit carton with all of the appropriate papers. It also means the firearm is new, that it has not been fired, and has no put on. This classification beings a substantial premium. NIB values aren't the same as MSRP however are “avenue values” that may be considerably decrease than MSRP. NIB retail worth should intently represent the selling worth for a new, unfired gun within the box. These prices are cross referenced with our seller price for a similar gun new from our distributors. We use the decrease of the 2 numbers to find out the present NIB value. We can't pay extra in your used firearm then we might buy it new for. Take *15% deduction of the decrease of the two numbers for dealer trade in worth.
