So then smoking or eating yourself to a cancerous early death is considered a natural death. Using that definition of of "natural death" people die of self-made natural deaths.So my understanding, and correct me if I'm wrong here, is that if you live long enough you are guaranteed to get cancer. Cancer mainly comes from damaged DNA, and that damage can happen from either external or internal sources. As you age the protein strands protecting your chromosomes (telomeres) deteriorates and damage starts to form. The "programmed death" in your genetic coding. The closest thing to 'natural death' I've ever heard of. Live long enough and you will die of cancer.
