No, it was a pesticide used to kill bed bugs 

Your answer was one of many-----I remember the Lincolnshire old couple who supposedly died of heart attacks  in their room at the same time,  Unknown  ??  did we all remember how it was gutted and pulled down quick.

It isnt, the official cause of death was poisoning , either through food, pesticide or fumes from rubbish being burned

But this is unknown because it does not say which one

A lovely example of statistics being used to prove everything and nothing.

 

A friend of mine, a surgeon, told me recently that the possibility of having prostate cancer is, statistically, in line with your birth date.  Thus, if you are 80, you have an 80% chance of having prostate cancer.  

 

Maybe the Thai doctors discover this on autopsy and, to save time and bother, list the cause of death as cancer, even though it may actually have been caused by an overdose of viagra.

Send 'em back to the UK when they reach their use by date.

 

The vast majority of the deaths seem to be the over 50's dying of natural causes.  Which would be expected in a country where so many retire to live out their lives.

I am pretty positive they are not doing prostate biopsies on autopsy of expats.

Free ale and cornish pastys if you are still breathing at every corner pub ?

This has been the case for 20+ years now.

 

Thailand is the most dangerous tourism destination for Britons. It is now the most dangerous tourism destination for Aussies and Swedes too.

 

Given the age breakdown, it seems Thailand is a dangerous place to get old.  Probably not just for Brits.  And not unlike the rest of the world.
