    Study Finds Those With Deceased Family Members At High Risk Of Dying Themselves

    Pinpointing the phenomenon as the single greatest predictor of human mortality, a paper published Wednesday in The New England Journal Of Medicine has found that people with deceased family members run an extremely high risk of dying themselves.

    The groundbreaking study, which tracked the health and well-being of 85,000 subjects over a period of 40 years, discovered that people who have one or more relatives who have passed away are very likely, one day, to die as well.

    “It appears that individuals with a family history of death have a strong genetic predisposition toward dying,” said the paper’s lead author, Dr. Samantha Booth, who explained that the finding held true regardless of a subject’s race, nationality, gender, or socioeconomic status. “Based on anecdotal evidence, we’ve long suspected an inherited trait could play a major role in determining whether a person dies, but we were surprised to see just how strong the correlation truly is.”

    “Unfortunately, for members of this cohort, death appears to be all but inevitable,” she continued.

    According to the study’s authors, the likelihood of future mortality remains high regardless of whether one’s immediate family members have died, or whether only more distant relations have passed on. Based on their findings, researchers hypothesize that death is handed down through individual lineages, becoming a devastating family curse that is passed from parent to child and which tends not to skip a generation.

    This is great news! It's only a matter of time before they find a cure after this breakthrough!
