According to this, your odds of dying from a bee sting are about the same as from getting killed by a bolt of lightning.  Death from pancreatic cancer is about equal to dying in a car accident, which in turn is four times more likely than from a motorcycle accident.  You are ten times more likely to die falling off a building than falling off a cliff, and twice as likely to die because your surgeon left his Rolex inside you than from getting eaten by a shark.

In answer to the heading, both kill the same number of Americans per year.
