ONLY THOSE WHO DON'T DO ANY THINK WORK IS GOOD FOR YOU:

Suicide rates highest in farmers, lumberjacks, fishermen (MIKE STOBBE, 6/30/16, AP)

In a study of suicide rates by occupation, the workers that killed themselves most often were farmers, lumberjacks and fishermen.

Researchers found the highest suicide rates in manual laborers who work in isolation and face unsteady employment. High rates were also seen in carpenters, miners, electricians and people who work in construction. Mechanics were close behind.

Dentists, doctors and other health care professionals had an 80 percent lower suicide rate than the farmers, fishermen and lumberjacks.

The lowest rate was in teachers, educators and librarians.
