DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE: MICHAEL JACKSON WAS "FAIRLY HEALTHY" AT TIME OF HIS DEATH


Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


According to the Associated Press, at the time of Michael Jackson's untimely death, he was "fairly healthy..."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — 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 only reason I posted on this subject was so that some positive MJ news could get as much shine (e.g. him being relatively healthy prior to his death and NOT all sickly like so many reports claimed) as all the negative sh*t that has been reported since this man passed away in June of this year.


Unless Dr. Murray and the other doctors who supplied Michael with illegal prescriptions drugs are all being tried for his murder, can we PLEASE allow his family to grieve and his soul to rest in peace. Enough with the weekly MJ news already....as Ben Stiller said in Meet The Parents...CONVERSATION (as in conversation over...aka sh*t the phuck up)!
