What Percent of people die in their sleep?
I've read it somewhere that 53% of people die in their sleep. Also, per Peter Nuland's book " How We Die", 25% of people die in their sleep, and 75% of the deaths are violent.

Approximately, 1 in 8 men will develop prostate cancer, but only 1 in 13 will actually die from it.
Scientific research has been done and although no specific reasons of death were a result, statistics show that 1 out of 8 Americans die in their sleep. Many times people die …in their sleep for obvious reasons such as, heart problems, respiratory dysfunction or simply over dosing on pills or alcohol.
It isn't very likely.
When you go to sleep, the body shuts down, and if you are older, your body can't generate enough power to wake back up. When you try to wake up and you can't move or breath fr…om your lungs and everything inside your body is shuts down and it is like you are smoking but it is not what you are doing your dieing that's what your doing.
you cant die but you will feel tired . and youll pass out in everything you sit on
Not necessarily, and starvation is a very painful way to die.
It is rare but deprivation (to the extreme) can possibly cause death by an excess of a certain protein in the brain.
10% of individuals suffering from bulimia will die from either starvation, cardiac arrest, other medical complications, or suicide.
They suffocate from their own dutch ovens.
In Sleep Disorders
Yes they can, although it is rare for anyone to experience a fatal amount of sleep deprivation.
In Humor & Amusement
Most likely because they stop breathing.
In Senior Citizens
Well of course, anyone can die in their sleep doesn't matter if they are young or old.
80% people don't get enough sleep.. babay
Very close to 0%. Marijuana is not particularly toxic, and it would be at leasttolerably difficult to consume enough to "die from it".Characterization of marijuana as inheren…tly deadly is, to put itcharitably, an exaggeration, and one I personally believe to becounterproductive ("Hey, those DARE officers lied to us aboutmarijuana, I bet heroin isn't really dangerous either, let's shootup!"). Like any other drug, it can impair judgement, and it's at leastplausible that someone under the influence could engage inhazardous activities they wouldn't undertake 'sober'. Also like anyother illegal drug, it's possible that people could be killed bycriminals for marijuana-related reasons, though it's probably lesslikely to happen over marijuana than most other illicit substances.Neither of these is particularly easy to quantify, but I'danticipate the number would be small compared to, say, the numberof people who die from overdosing on heroin or who are killed byHeisenberg/Gus Fring wannabes over methamphetamine a la Breaking Bad . If marijuana were decriminalized, I'd expect "risky behavior"deaths to go up somewhat (but probably not to anywhere neardrunk-driving fatality levels), and "criminal" deaths to drop tonear zero.
