Upside of Jackson's Death


The King of Pop's legacy might stretch beyond moonwalking, odd adult behavior, unintentionally choreographing the world's most popular film genre, and defining the modern meaning of prodigy. The premature death of one of the world's most iconic figures may finally challenge us to stop turning a blind eye to the abuse of prescription medications.

Since I harp on this subject regularly I’ll spare y’all my opinion and offer you the perspectives of a couple of famous MDs.

High on Fame: Michael Jackson and Enabling Doctors

The article was written by Dr. Deepak Chopra and Dr. Drew Pinsky. Here's the tagline:

Being a celebrity does not change the simple fact that the user is a drug addict. And having an M.D. after your name does not change the fact that if you supply the addict you're still a drug pusher.

It is a painful truth that if his team (including his MD) could have given Michael a good nutritional diet (he had no food in his stomach as far as I heard from the autopsy, just prescription drugs), perhaps he could have been around to raise his children. Big pharma has killed far too many people! It is only when something like this happens that we, as a society, just MIGHT take notice.
