Whenever I see a church or cathedral often wonder how many died building it,

without any modern equipment it must have been hellish.
Sqad - cruel thing - the 100 000 dead in the Panama canal were killed by Yellow Fever. (mostly) - it is one of the diseases where the guy fixing the vaccine kicked off with infecting himself with the disease.

This lot are falling off various bits of the half-built building arent they ?

wiki says Walter Reed died from appendicitis but what the hell ...

Thanks, Sqad.

//This lot are falling off various bits of the half-built building arent they ? //

By no means all of them. The article does mention, further down the page, that about half of them are dying from heart attacks. Not from a lack of physical fitness but from long term psychological stress.

I still wonder if Fabrice Muamba's heart attack was an example of this syndrome but I don't buy the newspapers and TV news didn't do a follow-up about it.
