  • 14 states do not have strong youth-sport concussion-safety laws.
  • "There are proven, evidence-based strategies that can spare millions of Americans from injuries each year," Jeff Levi, executive director of the Trust for America's Health, said in an organization news release. "This report focuses on specific, scientifically supported steps we can take to make it easier for Americans to keep themselves and their families safer."

    Research shows that injury-prevention programs and regulations save lives, the report found. For example:

    • Seat belts saved about 69,000 lives from 2006 to 2010
    • Motorcycle helmets saved about 8,000 lives from 2005 to 2009
    • Child safety seats saved around 1,800 lives from 2005 to 2009
    • The number of children and teens killed in motor-vehicle crashes dropped 41 percent from 2000 to 2009
    • School-based programs to prevent violence have cut violent behavior among high school students by 29 percent.

    The report also listed many emerging injury threats in the United States, including a dramatic rise in prescription-drug abuse, concussions in school sports, bullying, crashes caused by people texting and driving, and an expected increase in falls as baby boomers age.

    More information

    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has more about injury and violence prevention and control.
