"They [the Orcs] could be slain, and they were subjekt to disease, but apart from these ills, they died and were not immortal, even according to the manner of the Quendi; indeed they appear to have been by nature short-lived compared with the span of Men of higher races, such as the Edain"

I tend to use Tolkiens later sources, even though he never got time to rewrite/revice (if indeed he planned to revise it) it before he died.
