A Shocking Disclosure Concerning Bruce Lee’s Death
However, researchers have made a stunning discovery.
According to a study published in the Clinical Kidney Journal, Bruce Lee’s death may have been caused by hyponatremia. Hyponatremia occurs when the kidney fails to eliminate excess water. As a result, the blood salt concentration decreases.
According to research, he may have drank more water in the form of juice and protein drinks, which may have contributed to his demise.
Bruce Lee’s autopsy found that his brain had enlarged beyond the typical size. Therefore, it was determined that the brain enlargement caused by the painkiller was the cause of death, and not poison.
