Whitney Houston: What Killed Her?
Dr. Phil Leveque Salem-News.com
(MOLALLA, Ore.) - Like everyone else, I've been waiting nervously for the Los Angeles Coroner's Office, for their report. Now that it is here, I am embarrassed for whomever released the report and their amateurish lack of evaluations of the results.
Results, for example, cocaine and heart disease did not kill Whitney Houston.
(1) Whitney was a well-known coke user, it is an equally well known pick-me-upper, stronger than coffee but dangerously addicting. It is probable that she used it the night before. She was up and partying vigorously until 3:00 a.m. It would be detectable in her blood and urine for at least a couple of days.
(2) She certainly has/had heart disease. Everybody gets it, starting at about 30 years of age. She was severely frolicking the night before. That is when she would have had a heart attack.
(3) She had been taking, recently, three sedative/hypnitoc drugs as sleeping aids. (a. xanax), a tiny highly potent Valium-like drug. The usual dose is 0.5 mg, most people take a couple. (b. Flexeril), a brain depressant muscle relaxer. It is also a sleeping aid. (3. Benadryl), which is an antihistamine, but also a very good sleeping aid.
The combination of (a, b and c) produce synergy, in other words if dose a equals one, and dose b equals one, and dose c equals one, combination 1+1+1 does not equal 3, but somwehere between 6 and 10, obvious overdose of sleeping aids causing sleep and sliding down into the bathtub where she drowned.
I wrote in my previous article on this subject 'Whitney Houston's toxicology report' on Salem-News.com, Feb 21 2012, that she probably automatically, without thinking, took an overdose of a drug like Xanex. She took two more equally sedating drugs; Flexeril and Benadryl. The fact that marijuana was 'detected' means nothing.
Marijuana never killed anybody at any dose.
