    Natural causes is what scares me most. Sounds lingering and painful. And expensive for the survivors. No one to sue.

    clearly whoever wrote this has no understanding of underlying medical conditions. for instance Diabetes does not kill. It results in things like heart disease that leads to heart attack which does kill. Heart disease itself does not kill since many have it and die of other causes. So this is seriously flawed This was written only to instill more fear
