I am sitting here watching the news as I type. I live in Quebec, Canada. The leader cause of death is cancer. It is expected that one out of every two people will get some kind of cancer in their lifetime here in Quebec, not all will die but that certainly is scary. My ex boyfriend is suffering from cancer, hodgkens Disease, well I haven't heard from him in years, he may even have passed on by now. My sister died at 48 of bone cancer. It is so scary. Do you know what the leading cause of death is in the province, state, or area that you live?

well as far as I know all the stuff out on the market is what they know will help, cure, that is left in god's hands, and also has a lot to do with the way we live and the things we eat etc.

I would have to say cancer as well. A few years ago my father had skin cancer, luckily the doctor was able to remove the tumor and some lymph nodes. Even more lucky was that it didn't spread to important organs, especially his heart. I'm apart of a Bible study group that a lot of the members either has cancer or has family members with it. Last week, sad to say one member's family didn't survive the fight.

Nowadays we r also listening more deaths are due to cancer.But heart diseases n kidney problems are more here.Natural deaths became very rare.Top to all are accidents due to heavy traffics n irresponsible n careless driving.
