Was it really the flu?

Wikipedia calls it the 1918 flu pandemic and the National Archives calls it The Influenza Epidemic.

No matter which descriptor you choose, I had never heard that, especially among young adults, aspirin could have contributed to their deaths by causing hyperventilation and pulmonary edema at the high doses prescribed.

Thanks to [personal profile] rainbow for finding that interesting tidbit of information.

I'm trying to figure out how to sort my GEDCOM by date of death to see if any of my folks might have been in the group of young adults who could have been affected.
