Posted by , Updated on November 11, 2015


Death. It can be a sad event in our lives but it happens to all of us at one point or another. Some people spend their whole lives trying to avoid it. Others have a scary fascination of dancing with it but at the end of the day, death is pretty much a guarantee. So might as well learn as much about it as you can right? At the very least you can feel a bit more prepared for the inevitable. It’s usually a lot harder to face something if you don’t know what it is or if you don’t know anything about it. To give you some examples, did you know that every 90 seconds, a woman dies during pregnancy? How about the fact that there are more than 200 dead bodies on Mount Everest because due to impossible conditions they must be left to serve as grim way points. What about the fact that you are more likely to die in the taxi on the way to the airport than in the plane itself. There’s a heck of a lot more death related facts on today’s list! So whether it’s depressing statistics about suicide or the way your stomach acids will eventually devour your corpse (it’s morbid, we know), these are 25 Death Related Facts That Might Make You Glad To Be Alive.
