The number of things that can kill us....Too much of this, too much of that. I wonder how many people have actually died from doing nothing (boredom). From your article it seems that may be a factor also ("41 had been depressed for weeks or months"). There are so many ways to die, probably the best thing to do is what we all do every day...forget about it and pretend death doesn't exist :))
This article was a fun read--that is probably an odd reaction, given the fact that your post is about death.
