Report: Drug overdose leading cause of death among men under 40 in Finland
According to the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction EMCDDA, there were 194 cases of death due to drug overdose in 2016 - an increase of 28 cases on the previous year. The agency has based its findings on data provided by Statistics Finland.

In fact, fatal drug overdose cases rank alongside suicide, cancer and accidents as one of the most common causes of death in this age group. The agency reported that more than two-thirds of drug overdose fatalities - some 77 percent - involve men.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
