Death and serious injury from dark matter

A few years ago, I wrote a blog post about a paper published on the subject of dark matter as a potential cancer-causing agent.  Today, a related paper was published on the potential of "macros" -- dark matter object of macroscopic size (or weight) that could cause death or serious injury in humans, in the form a bullet-like wounds.  The apparent absence of such dark matter deaths is then used to put limits on the actual occurrence of such forms of dark matter.
