The nuclear stuff has a very long residual effect and because it spreads through air and water, it may be killing us all just a little bit. Things like that big event in Japan kill a few people on the scene, but they may reduce the lifespan of many people eating from the nearby ocean.
I wonder how many people have been killed when their horse, oxen or water buffalo made a wrong move. Those animals are used for their energy. Then there's all the guys who kill themselves while cutting firewood.
