Travel increases the chance of dying in an accident for males, especially under the age of 55. You can have your heart attack anywhere, but road safety overseas is often much less than in the US. I tell all my travel clinic clients: "Wear a seat belt—if there is one!"
There are ways to reduce your risk, whether it is protection against insect-borne diseases which are on the rise, wound treatment kits for remote places, or water treatment options where clean water is scarce.
