This paper discusses the sociological failures of NASH (Natural, Accident, Suicide, Homicide) categories when assigning causes of death, especially that of suicide. The authors investigated deaths in Canada caused by motor vehicle accidents, cirrhosis of the liver, stomach cancer & homicide and analyzed them to see if these causes of death shared similar sociological factors to that of suicide. Overlap was found between suicide and homicide & alcoholism. (32 refs.)
