Here's The Real Cause Of Whitney Houston's Death

Reuters has reported that the cause of Whitney Houston's death was accidental drowning. A press release from the the Los Angeles Coroner's office states that the effects of both heart disease and cocaine contributed to her death.

The report, however, raises more questions than answers.

According to the toxicology report, cocaine, marijuana, Xanax, Flexeril and Benadryl were found in her system. However, only cocaine was ruled to contribute to her passing.

So how could Houston have drowned while cocaine was in her system?

1. Habitual crack use has a debilitating effect on the cardiovascular system.

Then compound that with tranquilizers, muscle relaxants...prolong abuse...the body just don't know which way to go...what is normal anymore? Then...crash and burn happens.

3. If one has a heart condition ...

... and takes those kind of depressants (marijuana, Xanax, Flexeril and Benadryl), all-together or in some combination, your heart isn't going to be able to maintain its needed rhythm/action.

I don't see what coke has to do with the conclusion, unless they figure she was doing an Energizer Bunny impression and took all the other shit to calm herself down, but even then, it would have been the offset-depressants that caused her death, not the coke.


JMHO and I'm not a doctor.

4. a simple explanation: cocaine is the only illegal drug in that list

the rest are prescription, so taken at normal doses, they couldn't possibly contribute to her death.

5. Simple explanation

Given her metabolites of cocaine and the other drugs, the only drug that was likely having any effect on her was cocaine.

Most likely she had a heart attack and fell into or got into the tub (didn't realize she was overheating due to a heart attack and was trying to cool off), where she became unconscious and drowned.
