Heath Ledger Death Update: Six Pharmaceuticals Found - Antidepressants, Sleep Meds and More
Posted Oct 22 2008 4:38pm
In a surprising turn of events, the mainstream media has begun to ask the question, "What killed Heath Ledger?" According to the Associated Press, authorities have now stated they found six different prescription drugs in Ledger's apartment. Those drugs reportedly include Zoloft (a mind-altering antidepressant drug) and Ambien (a sleep drug with bizarre side effects) as well as an antihistamine drug that has not yet been named. Reports also state there were over-the-counter prescription drugs found at the scene, and that three of the pharmaceuticals found in Ledger's apartment were prescribed in Europe (the others were prescribed in the United States).
The Drudge Report is asking tonight, "What Killed Heath?" It's the first sensible headline we've seen on the topic, and of course it comes from an online, alternative media source (the mainstream media has yet to seriously question the safety of the FDA-approved pharmaceuticals that appear to be involved in Ledger's death).
Why cover this celebrity story?(natural news.com)
I truly believe Ledger would be alive, healthy and happy today if he had turned to natural medicine instead of relying on chemical pharmaceuticals. And while his death is a tragic loss of a widely-loved human being, it is hugely important that society pay attention to what might have killed Ledger and take precautions to protect our children, teens and young adults from similar fates in the future. What Ledger's death demonstrates, I believe, is the cost in human lives of the mass-medication of our population.
