Melbourne: Being famous comes at a price! Having a glamorous career as a singer, actor or sports star may come at the cost of a shorter life, a new study has claimed. Based on the premise that an obituary in the New York Times (NYT) usually implies success in one`s career, Australian researchers Richard Epstein and Catherine Epstein analysed 1000 consecutive obituaries published in the NYT during 2009-2011 in terms of gender, age, occupation, and cause of death. "A one-off retrospective analysis like this can`t prove anything, but it raises some interesting questions," researchers at The Kinghorn Cancer Centre, St Vincent`s Hospital in Sydney, said. They separated subjects into four broad occupational categories: performance or sport (including actors, singers, musicians, dancers, and sportsperson), non-performing creative (including writers, composers and visual artists), business or military or political, and professional or academic or religious.
