pneumonia? bloody hell... I had no idea it kills.. R.I.P

pasta_spice2268d ago

Yeah it can kill...although it is usually only considered life-threatening to the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. It's rare for someone so young and presumably healthy to die from it.

R.I.P Miyu.

Mikefizzled2267d ago

Slightly off topic, Do you think Japan has a weaker immune system on a whole? Since it's not uncommon to see people wearing breathing masks.

Mike you may have Japan confused with China.

MazzingerZ2267d ago

Many are unaware they have weak heart...that's mostly the reason behind it...if you get a disease that really stresses the body and you happen to have a weak heart then it's really dangerous and we are not only talking about's enough that you lately have been working really hard or being nonchalant when it comes to sleeping enough, eating well, in other words, taking care of yourself...hell! a really bad hang over combined with one of those diseases can kill many.

She probably had bad luck and caught her with no defenses. Too young.

Mikefizzled2267d ago

Just checked because I knew I wasn't mistaking Japan for China.

Actually wearing a mask is considered common courtesy when you have a cold or cough in countries like Japan so as not to pass the germs onto others.

In most first world countries and Japan is one of them the majority of children are immunized against the most common diseases, however some for a variety of reasons op out and even though those non immunized people are more susceptible to disease they usually don't encounter the disease since most people are immunized.

Of course there are exceptions and even an immunized person can still fall sick to a particular disease although the probability is much smaller.

Pneumonia kills many many people per year. Look up a list of notable people who have died from it and you will probably be a bit surprised.

I believe Jim Henson died from some form of pneumonia, as well.

Mikefizzled2267d ago (Edited 2267d ago )

Regarding the beloved Mr Henson, "The official cause of death was first reported as Streptococcus pneumoniae, a bacterial infection that causes bacterial pneumonia. It was later classified as organ failure resulting from streptococcal toxic shock syndrome."

Not the same but sad nonetheless.

Narutone662267d ago

It starts out like a common cold, but the person infected are not getting better and are getting weaker and weaker. My daughter got it earlier this year, we rushed her to a hospital and she was confined for almost a week.

rainslacker2267d ago

I lot of people just think it's a really bad cold(similar symptoms early on before the lungs fill with liquid), and many people don't seek treatment for a cold. Typically it gets pretty bad before seeking treatment, and it's not always possible to treat after a certain point.

Mike also pointed out it can be toxic to the organs at times, which can also cause death if not caught soon enough.

Usually when it kills someone young. Its due to underlying health issues. Something else that the pneumonia made worse. R.I.P. Im 36 so when young people die it. Puts mine into propective.

God Bless her and her family.

UnHoly_One2267d ago

Yeah no kidding. I'm the same age as her. :(

JohnathanACE2267d ago (Edited 2267d ago )

A good friend of my dad caught a rare form of pneumonia and passed away so yes, it can be very deadly depending on the type of pneumonia.

Also R.I.P Miyu Matsuki. You died way too young.

Unfortunately there are many people who die even younger from many different causes.

From my perspective she died way too young and my sympathy goes out to her family and friends.
