Audrey Hepburn : Hot Take-Audrey dying at 60 isn't abnormally young

Hot Take-Audrey dying at 60 isn't abnormally young

For starters the age expectancy of normal people from before the prosperous 1950s and 1960s was generally late 50s to early 60s.

Compare her to say the 2%? Well Judy Garland died before she was 50 and Vivien Leigh missed Audrey's age by a decade. Joan Crawford, Ingrid Bergman, and Rita Hayworth were merely 5 years older than she was in 1993 at their deaths too.

In all honesty even without growing up in the war, I wouldn't be surprised if she died in the 90s from something else other than the cancer supposedly caused by malnutrition at a young age. It was simply the norm for her generation despite how books, the news, and documentaries laments how she died so young and the often so emphasized war years permanently crippling her to cause cancer later in life.

My youngest brother and a close friend recently died at 61–pancreatic cancer and a blood clot. It was natural that I would commiserate with his widow. My brother also had a history of kidney disease that intensified as the end approached.

From what I remember she died of colon cancer while doing a bunch of UNICEF stuff. I think that means she probably had to get a bunch of vaccinations. They probably destroyed her immune system which then lead to her getting turbo cancer.

No, Doctor Manhattan gave her cancer after Veidt planted the radioactive material in her office for decades

Perhaps not, however in 1944/45 there was actual starvation in Holland - so more than just general malnutrition, and both Judy Garland and Vivian Leigh had significant health problems which probably explains their relatively early deaths.
