Can someone tell me the difference between die from and die of?
regards, Korry Lo
I agree with Clark and rj.
However, I'm not really sure about the correct usage...
So I'd like to give you these links.
You can find lots of examples there :

I hope it will be a great help to you.
A person can die of an illness. In careful usage, die from is reserved for indirect causes of death, e.g., people with the lowest cholesterol levels were more likely to die from tragic causes, such as car crashes or suicide.die of (internal); e.g., of a heart attack, of hunger
die (1) definition - Dictionary - MSN Encarta
die from (external); e.g., want of care
Speakers tend not to follow the rules here.
