9. Influenza/ Pneumonia

The cases of the flu are actually pretty scary looking at the deaths that these colds cause. With over 50,000 deaths caused back in 2010, this means that if were unprepared a common cold (or at least we think it is) would lead to our common deaths.

8. Nephritis

Something in the world has gone amiss when you see deaths caused by Nephritis. This disease is an inflammation of the kidneys caused by infections, auto-immune disease and the like. In most cases these sickness are inherited though it would not be seen during birth.

We should start following what our doctors tell us and cut down on our sugar.

It is obvious that with these facts, death concerning it will also rise.

6. Alzheimer’s

A surprising addition to the list is Alzheimer’s. But when you think about it, it does make sense. Memories, mixed up emotions and all those sudden forgetfulness can kill a person. Better get someone to watch your elderly carefully once theys tart losing it.
