Kung Fu master and Hollywood star Bruce Lee died in Hong Kong in 1973 at the age of 32. Doctors came to a surprising conclusion about Bruce Lee's death, nearly 50 years after his death. Experts claimed that Bruce may have died from drinking too much water.
The true cause of death of martial arts master and Hollywood star Bruce Lee came to light nearly 50 years later. The autopsy performed after Lee's death contained evidence that Bruce died of cerebral edema. Doctors attributed this to the young star taking too much painkillers and some medications. The truth that emerged years later left me astonished.
Doctors said that Bruce Lee's drinking a lot of water accelerated the formation of edema with a series of disorders in the cells. This condition is called hyponatremia in the medical world.
While the researchers state that drinking water was 'a very common activity', the expression of those around Bruce Lee was significantly higher on the day of his death. Bruce also reportedly used some form of drugs frequently and described himself as "drunk as hell" in one letter. It has been proven that thirst increases as a result of some substance use. Polly claimed in her book that she used this substance on July 20, 1973, the day Bruce died. The researchers suggest that this physiological condition may have prompted Bruce to drink too much water.
Bruce Lee's wife, Linda, said she followed a liquid-based diet of carrots and applesauce until her husband's death.
