  1. How many more years of life do we expect for a 102 year old? Or an 89 year old? People at that age are literally saying they want to do and have done their time. This is farcical now. And they wonder why people don’t trust medical institution. They can see through BS.

    • “Just saying.” That is one of the most insensitive and asinine statement ever posted. Do you know the quality of life that these people enjoyed despite they age? They may have still been experiencing quality of life despite their age, surrounded by family who they enjoyed spending time with etc. Being old does not necessarily mean you don’t want to live, especially if you still have quality of life. They are human after all. You on the other hand sound sub human with all your ageism.

      • You retard. Life expectancy is around 75. The person lived to 102. That is 36% longer than average. That is an anomaly. Very few old people want to live the life of an average 80 year old i.e. sickly and a burden to others. 3 years ago a 102 year old person dying from influenza was not news. An 89 year old drying from influenza was not news. Now it is. You brainwashed morons need to go wrap yourselves up in saran wrap from head to toe. And just stay there for a bit. Rid the world of your stupidity.

    • You are not getting the point that Marksgirl made. basically you are displaying a callous and insensitive non appreciation to life regardless of age of the person. Very ignorant statement as far as I am concerned. Life is full of irony, you never know what tomorrow can bring . You may suddenly find yourself more incapacitated and closer to death than an old person in a blink of an eye no matter how young you are. Try to be a little more compassionate and respect all life.
