TKC DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS ESPECIAL!!! FEAR TOP CAUSES OF DEATH IN KANSAS CITY!!!



Today we confront the topic of mortality along with the even more uncomfortable fact that many Americans are adopting the curious traditions of Mexican death culture.

Nevertheless, our KICK-ASS TKC blog community is committed to bringing the shining light of knowledge, hotties and snark amid so much fear and loathing in the local political discourse.

To wit for Day of the Dead . . .



CHECK THIS QUICK BREAKDOWN OF THE TOP CAUSES OF DEATH IN KANSAS CITY FOR DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS!!!

Here's the overview . . .



As with all things, it seems that the residents of Kansas City are at war with themselves. Cancer and not gunfire is the top killer in this cowtown.

Check a quick demographic breakdown that offers more insight but should remind us that in the long run DEATH MAKES EQUALS OF US ALL.

Still, here's a notable fact from the study that speaks to a tragic disparity of lives wasted far to quickly  . . .

Homicide was the 3rd leading cause of death among blacks, with 5.8% of all deaths as compared to less than 1% of all deaths for Whites (19th leading cause) . . . 



More data offers a glimpse of gender differences in KCMO death with women still outlasting most local men as any honest bar conversation will reveal . . .



Finally, here's a look at the total number of deaths & their causes last year and tally of locals lone gone but not forgotten.



While cancer and and heart disease are the leading killers in Kansas City for residents of this town . . . For denizens of every demographic betwixt the ages of 15-34 ... Homicide, accidents and other "external factors" accounted for more than half of all deaths. And the rate of suicide for these local residents is also on the rise at a rate accounting for more than 20% of young people in this group.

For more info, read the top causes of death in Kansas City, Missouri 2012-2016 from the City Hall Division of COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT, POLICY, and ACCOUNTABILITY.

Armed with this info . . .



In the meantime between now and eternity, rather than agonizing over so many false arguments which confront us every day, we hope Kansas City enjoys the time that we have together.

Very nice.

Kind of start but it makes sense for this foggy morning.

Jordan and her fine German appreciation of Mexican Halloween "holiday" give me something to life for, thanks T.

Very cool. Somehow comforting. I think this post should remind us that HEALTHCARE is really our greatest concern in KC and across the nation. It's the one issue where both Republicans and Democrats and our President are failing us compared to every other industrialized nation in the world.

Thanks for the info. But I still think KC is going to find a way to tax me after death.

I know a lot of people will disagree with me, but with Jordan Carver, there is such a thing as too big.

Could falling under Jordan be a cause of death?

Many if not most of the listed causes are primarily diseases associated with old age. People have to die of something, sometime, so the list is not especially alarming.

A better way to measure is by the number of years not lived. A teenager who dies in a car crash, or by violence, has lost a lot more years than an octagenarian who dies from cancer. Measured that way, it is likely that accidental deaths would be at or near the top, with deaths by suicide not far away.

So the medical industry, VA and Obamacare kills more people than train wrecks, car accidents, plane crashes, firearms, terrorists, violent crime, drunks, opiates and war.

When the student mortician asked if I wanted to stuff a body cavity, I asked how long it would take, and she said about 10 inches would do!!!

Death, laundry, groceries and traffic are the great equalizers.

Can we get stroke off the top 10 list? People should get assessed by their doctor for risk of stroke. 80% is preventable.
