Hello,

As I know the because of is an adverb, and it modifies the verb die, but I just want to double check.

in case we want to use due to, how the is sentence written?

Thank you

the death is due to starvation.

in this case it is correct.

due to is a noun modifier
because of - modifies entire clause
