    Die Of/From

    a) "He died of cancer."
    b) "He died from cancer."

    "Die of" and "die from" the same?

    I think it's to suffer from an illness but to die of an illness.

    Re: Die Of/From

    I think it's "to die of something" or "to die for something" but not "from".

    Regards.
