What's the most dangerous profession?

When clients complain about what I charge I think about the education, experience, equipment, licenses, etc. it takes just to hang a shingle.

More important however is the danger we face everyday. We can't see, smell, or taste what we work with everyday. If we feel our "product" it may well be the last thought we process.

Also, we face the normal perils as other trades: falls, burns, cuts, poisons, etc.

What have I missed?

We deal with all kinds of dangerous things on a daily basis, GFCI's tripping during lightning storms comes to mind.
