    How we die....then and now

    The New England Journal of Medicine looks through 200 years of back issues to understand how we die differently:



    I think the take home is that through innovations in science and medicine, we now live long enough to die from chronic degenerative diseases...

    Guess it's true what they say-life is a death sentence.
    "This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    One of the craziest stories to me about old-timey living is how Calvin Coolidge's son played tennis without his socks on, got a blister, it got infected, and he died from it. From not wearing socks with his shoes, one time.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Wow it's crazy to look at the drop of influenza/pneumonia deaths and the rise of cancer deaths.

    I wonder what it would look like in 2100?

    Indeed. I believe a big part of the increase in cancer deaths is the decrease in other causes (and the resulting longer lifespan). The longer we live the more likely it is we will develop cancer. Take a look at this life expectancy chart; mind blowing.

    Not only that but he went from the blister to being dead in only 8 days.
