Even though people who harm themselves are known to have a higher suicide rate than general society, what isn’t as commonly known is the fact that they die earlier from natural deaths. 

Deaths rates from natural causes were between two and 7.5 times higher than those of the general population, depending on the particular cause of death. For instance, deaths from circulatory system diseases were 2.3 times higher, while deaths from digestive diseases were 7.5 times higher.
