    Sorry! It's "die of and die from" not "die of

    Hello,

    I am sorry! My question should be the difference between "die of " and "die from," there was a typo, sorry!


    thanks for the patience

    Yep, quite often they mean the same thing. They are used somewhat differently though to some extent. A Google search turned up:

    "die from" = 510,000
    "die from eating" = 1,640
    "die from ingesting" = 266
    "die from inhaling" = 162

    "die of" = 472,000
    "die of eating" = 241
    "die of ingesting" = 2
    "die of inhaling" = 9


    Interesting, huh? Well, maybe not.

    Regards,
