Changes In How We Die

(Via a Twitter link)

I found this short article interesting as far as how much has changed regarding mortality between 1900 and 2010. I suspect it's just human nature to worry about death (perhaps because of our vast imaginations), but when you think just how much better off we are, in that concern, than our great-grandparents were in their prime, you might expect that we'd chill out a bit on the topic, wouldn't you? If anything, though, I think it's gone in the other direction.
