1 in 3 wrong? Think your grandmother or parent died from heart disease? Maybe not. The ratio of incorrect causes and contributors in caregiver-signed death certificates is probably much much higher than this because: .

1. Doctors other than forensic pathologists are usually not adequately trained in death certication.

2. Inundated M.E./coroner offices often do not autopsy individuals over certain criteria even with no history. Those people who are over that criteria ….well, they will be likely listed as dying from cardiovascular disease “whether they have it or not”.
