It's off either way. Booze plus tobacco can be linked to way more than half a million deaths per year. Acute poisoning is nowhere near 500K, though.
The chart never said acute poisoning.
Then wtf are the numbers on the righthand side?

Maybe if I had the CDC link handy instead of a shitty asterisk or something besides "death toll per year" to work with.

Meaningless. At least not without some sort of clarification. That could refer to anything from direct death due to overdose or poisoning. It could be the mortality rate among all users over their lifetime which would of course be 100% for everything because everyone dies. It could be anything in between.

tl;dr: That text and those numbers are bullshit, but the story they are trying to tell isn't wrong.

You have to tell me when this golden age of free and unbiased science you continually refer to took place.

Mostly from the late 1930s to the early 1970s.

EDIT: The physical sciences anyway. Social and medical sciences were biased af.

Pretty sure a lot of suspicious government money funded that research.

Sure, but that doesn't mean they results weren't pretty focused on getting things right instead of being political or faking the results they want. It was driven by the need to discover the accurate science and convert it into concrete engineering as effectively as possible to better fight the Nazi's and/or Commies.

I still can't figure out why this thread exists.

Is this Gordo's Favorites for images?
