You Have to Die of Something

Breaking News on Change.org:

World’s Biggest Killer in HEALTH CARE

In 2010, cancer will become the number one cause of death in the world. This statistic is especially tragic considering that one-third of all cancer deaths are preventable, writes Change.org Changemaker and CEO of the Lance Armstrong Foundation, Doug Ulman. Taking a stronger stand to prevent tobacco addiction will save countless people the pain of a diagnosis.

But everyone dies. There is no way out of this life except to die. That is the terrible, hard truth of this wheel of suffering we find ourselves on. And if we, as intelligent, controlling beings, find ourselves able to avoid most causes of death for most people, then we still have to die of something.

  2. We will know that the health system is perfect when the cause of death is 100% suicide. (Once all other deaths are prevented)
