You wouldn’t go in a car without wearing a seatbelt? Well, if you’re a woman in South Korea, that’s great, but maybe you should be concerned about something else.
Women in South Korea are now more likely to die of suicide, than they are of auto accidents. Suicide is the third most likely cause of death for women.
The rates for men are also high, and rising rapidly.
Family conflict was the biggest factor behind suicides, followed by financial difficulties, divorce or separation, and disease, according to researchers at Samsung Seoul Hospital and Seoul National University (SNU) Hospital, Thursday.
