One lad in my primary school class died of complications from what started as a cold.
His parents were members of a Christian sect/cult which didn't believe in medical treatment.

IIRC, James Hetfield of Metallica fame, was raised in a Christian Scientist home, and his ma died refusing cancer treatment because of her faith. It happens surprisingly frequently, The J-Dubs policy on blood transfusions has claimed quite a few, too.
