Danger is all around us all of the time. Freak accidents are rare, but people have been killed unexpectedly by lighting strikes, flash floods, and even sinkholes! Then there are the internal dangers, like a heart defect that could kill someone in an instant, or perhaps a brain aneurism. There really is no way for us to avoid some of life’s hazards, but we can always do what actually is under our control to minimize or eliminate many dangers. Staying clear of the world’s most dangerous cities would be a very good idea if you want to live a long life.
1. Aleppo, Syria
The entire world is aware of the political situation in Syria as competing forces fight for control of land and the people who live on it. Many residents of Aleppo have adopted lives as refugees, and have fled over the border into neighboring Turkey as conditions continue to worsen. In addition to the fighting, daily life is also complicated by lack of basic needs such as power and water, which is routinely disrupted or cut off completely.
