• Old Age Death Is Illegal

Old Age Death Is Illegal!

I don’t really see what they could do about it if you did actually die of old age, it’s not like you could be taken to court or anything…

Since 1951, no American has legally died of old age because since then, old age was cured – as a cause of death.

There were over 130 causes of death due to dying of old age, so they didn’t think that grouping them all together and simply putting it as ‘old age’ was acceptable. However it is legal to die of old age in other countries, America just likes to be different. It is also illegal to die of a broken heart and laughing in the USA.

    Might not be able to have died of a broken heart on a death certificate, but the stress and pain caused by loss can kill you. I work in an ER and shortly after the doctor told the family that a young girl had died, her grandmother suffered from a heart attack. If not for her being in the ER at the time, she may have also died from a “broken heart”, in both meanings.
