Two names that rarely crop up are the actress Valerie Ashton (93) who was the third & last wife of Sid James who died 45 years ago in 1976 aged only 62 (but looking at least that age since he was 40). The other is Alvin Rakoff (94) who gave Sean Connery his first major acting role which was opposite Rakoff's girlfriend & later wife Jacqueline Hill. Jacqueline who died in 1993 aged only 63 was one of the initial 3 companions of Doctor Who in 1963 and played a history teacher called Barbara.

Alvin Rakoff did this interview with BBC radio in August. He sounded quite good for his age tbh.

Interesting that someone who eats food prepared by a Cordon Bleu-trained chef would end up with stomach cancer... the exact same thing happened to Holly Clegg.

I found that suspicious as well. We had quite a few prominent chefs in cancer battles. Now, Fatima Ali and Andrew Fairlie had cancers -probably- unrelated to food/drink, but Sommelier Gerard Basset had esophageal cancer.

 

When you google "chef stomach cancer" you find the "cook without stomach", Hans Rueffert.

Or Sous-Chef and musician Abdul Zakir, cause of death: stomach cancer. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/article-abdul-zakir-had-a-knack-for-finding-the-inner-musician-in-everyone/

Or half a year ago, Westin Hotel executive chef Curtis Wolf:  https://eu.greenvilleonline.com/story/news/local/2021/02/23/greenville-westin-hotel-executive-chef-curtis-wolf-dead/4540013001/

 

There's also one of the world's most esteemed chefs, Grant Achatz, with stage IV tongue cancer.

Bring me official statistics that mortality is increasing in that age range. Otherwise it's your usual bullshit.

 

EDIT: And who said she was vaccinated? Do you know it by your direct experience? You always seems to put the cart before the horses.

According to TMZ, the family was told her death was a homicide. Her boyfriend was arrested the same day her body was found, but the local police won't say why he was arrested, nor if he's a person of interest/suspect in her death. Looks like a possible domestic violence case.

She must’ve been killed by her boyfriend injecting the vaccine in her then. :D
