Most people who die of natural causes do not seek medical help

Uh--so we see a doctor and die of unnatural causes?

I cannot tell you how happy I am to see someone finally explain the term "natural death". I've always wondered about that.

What if you were dressed up as a Thai termite and died of a heart attack ? Would that be natural ?

Psychic mediums are unfortunately far more available (if less reliable) than healthcare for many people in this country:

"The data also revealed that more than half of these people did not have a healthcare provider.

"They had symptoms and knew they were getting worse," explains Drake. "Yet, they didn't seek the attention of a healthcare provider. We need to conduct further research to answer the question of 'why?'"

What's the big mystery? The US is the only major industrialized nation that doesn't have government provided healthcare. And the care it does have is way too expensive for many people.

If you don't like Medicare for all, how about Psychics for all?

So 30% of people who saw their doctors in the previous month died?

I'd better time my annual appointment around my mortgage payment.

Good one Ralph, you are as funny as a heart attack! If the merits of national health care can't be worked out here, then why do we even have this blog? Perhaps to bring seriousness to our otherwise hilarious days. Well, back to telling jokes to my boss...

Last time I died, I was surrounded by doctors and nurses. They were very helpful, and very good at shouting “Code Blue.”

I once had a doctor friend tell me that there are more old drunks than there are old doctors.

Then we drank beer, grilled some steaks and later smoked cigars

Does pathologist or coroner counts as "medical help"?

@Qaz--My doctor friend later died of ALS. He left me with a great outlook on life: "Do not fret dying to the point that you are afraid to live."

would that be before or after death?
