A Natural Death

Natural death. Natural causes. Some terms have become so…natural…to our collective vocabulary that we hardly ever question them. That’s why I found this piece so refreshing. While eventual death is in our nature, once you look close enough, no death is «natural», the author argues. «Approximately once a month, my team and I bring back a patient who only decades ago would have been considered thoroughly dead […] Death is a moving target.»
