pls tell me which is correct: 'die from heart disease' or 'die of heart disease'? thanx in advance!
'to die of' : use this when referring to the direct cause, such as cancer, or heart attack.
'to die from' : use when referring to an indirect agent.
So - he died from exposure to radiation (and then the radiation produced cancer, which caused the death)
the sheep died from the heat (which led to dehydration and so, death)
thanx David for your clear explanation!
