Description: We all have a 100% chance of dying - eventually. But what are the world's biggest killers? When are you most at risk? And what can you do to postpone the inevitable for as long as possible?
Synopsis: Death - A Survival Guide offers a unique insight into the biggest threats to life and limb in the industrialized world. Sarah Brewer's comprehensive and thorough survey of the most likely ways to die in the industrialized world looks at 100 causes of death from the most common such as heart disease, smoking related deaths and domestic accidents to the unusual and downright bizarre lightning strikes and animal attacks. This fascinating - and occasionally sideways - look at death and dying will help you understand the most common causes of death and how each one affects the human body. View at a glance statistics reveal who dies where, when and how often; lists of warning signs, symptoms and risk factors allow you to determine the chances of it happening to you; and finally case studies on prevention, treatment and cures describe the best steps you can take to avoid meeting your maker in this way. Aeroplane crash; Anaphylactic shock; Aortic aneurysm; Brain tumour; Breast cancer; Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease; Dehydration; Dementia; Domestic accidents; Heart attack; Influenza; Malaria; Occupational hazards at work; Over-exertion; Pulmonary Embolism; Respiratory failure.
