So it seems, according to the autopsy report, propofol did kill Michael Jackson. Surprised? Nope.
What is surprising is that Michael Jackson was perfectly healthy.
Here is exactly what the AP report said, word for word:
Michael Jackson's arms were covered with punctures, his face and neck were scarred and he had tattooed eyebrows and lips, but he wasn't the sickly skeleton of a man portrayed by tabloids, according to his autopsy report obtained by The Associated Press.
In fact, the Los Angeles County coroner's report shows Jackson was a fairly healthy 50-year-old before he died of an overdose. His 136 pounds were in the acceptable range for a 5-foot-9 man. His heart was strong with no sign of plaque buildup. And his kidneys and most other major organs were normal.
Still, Jackson had health issues: arthritis in the lower spine and some fingers, and mild plaque buildup in his leg arteries. Most serious was his lungs, which the autopsy report said were chronically inflamed and had reduced capacity that might have left him short of breath.
However, according to the document, the lung condition was not serious enough to be a direct or contributing cause of death.
"His overall health was fine," said Dr. Zeev Kain, chairman of the anesthesiology department at the University of California, Irvine, who reviewed a copy of the autopsy report for the AP. "The results are within normal limits."
The reason I put the AP report and not my own words even though what I state is fact, I felt it was important that you see it and hear it. Within the next day or two, I will put out some information that I shared with you shortly after he passed. For now, I will stick to the facts.
What do you think of this information released? 5'9 and 136 pounds is normal? Wow.-Dr.FB
