Bruce Lee may have died from drinking too much water, new research says

Bruce Lee passed away all the way back in 1973. His passing was shrouded in mystery for years with plenty of conspiracy theories floating around.

However, recently a new explanation emerged potentially explaining the 32-year-old’s abrupt death.

Bruce Lee may have passed away after drinking too much water.

Brain edema was the initial cause of death – this was a disputed cause.

According to recent research, Lee most likely passed away from hyponatremia. The Cleveland Clinic claims that the illness develops when the body retains too much water and the blood’s salt levels are too low.

The inability to excrete enough water to sustain water causes homeostasis, which is primarily a tubular function. It is a sort of renal malfunction and it is assumed to be the cause of Bruce Lee’s death.

If excessive water consumption is not matched by water elimination in the urine, it may cause hyponatremia, cerebral edema (brain swelling), and death within hours. This is consistent with the time frame of Lee’s death.

Rumors have persisted throughout the time that he could have been poisoned, murdered, or succumbed to heatstroke. The most recent discoveries seemed to refute the rumours.

His potential for developing hyponatremia may have been increased by a number of variables, according to researchers. It’s possible that Lee’s cannabis usage enhanced his thirst. His kidneys’ capacity to excrete water may have also been impacted by prescription medication and alcohol.

The 32-year-wife old’s Linda claims that he maintained a fluid-based diet that comprised carrot and apple juice.

Lee appeared in many movies, such as Game of Death, The Orphan, and Enter The Dragon. Lee also developed Jeet Kune Do, a mixed martial arts concept that may be used in demanding circumstances and actual fighting.
