Response to How Bruce Lee really died
Findings in the medical community a number of yrs ago suggest that Bruce Lee may have died from sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP), which was only recognized in 1995. Bruce collapsed on May 10th 1973 (a couple months before he died on July 20th) with the same problem. He was close to death but was saved in time. He was given medication to treat an epileptic disorder. Interesting when you consider SUDEP was recognized 22 years later as a valid epileptic condition brought on by stress and lack of sleep. Out of all the theories, this makes the most sense to me. What may have been a mystery to the medical community in 1973 may be common knowledge 20 years or so later. I know there were people like Bob Wall and Robert Clouse that said Lee was under allot of stress and lacked sleep during the making of Enter the Dragon, Lee would call Clouse all hours of the night with ideas for the movie and was never really able to unwind. Bruce Lee died because of too much stress and lack of sleep that caused his brain to swell and caused edema. These incidents in Japan, where many business man worked too much and died over stressed and collapsed (Karôshi) is the same; The first case of karôshi was reported in 1969 with the death from a stroke of a 29-year-old male worker in the shipping department of Japan's largest newspaper company. It was not until the later part of the 1980s, during the Bubble Economy, however, when several high-ranking business executives who were still in their prime years suddenly died without any previous sign of illness, that the media began picking up on what appeared to be a new phenomenon. This new phenomenon was quickly labeled karôshi and was immediately seen as a new and serious menace for people in the work force. In 1987, as public concern increased, the Japanese Ministry of Labour began to publish statistics on karôshi.
