Should rogue docs in Hollywood be accountable for the death of the two pop superstar singers from prescribed benzodiazepine mixed to alcohol for the latter or anaesthetic medicine like propofol for the former?
That the question each and every medical doctors in the world should ask themselves.
The least that it can be said is that the two artists were not helped by their medical entourage nor friendship circle.
Certainly they were deeply unhappy and isolated in the middle of celebrity and superficial relationship or greedy managers.
It remembers me a maxim my cousin shared few days ago on Facebook: “there is no way to happiness, happiness is the way”. And definitely the worst way to happiness is to take medicine mixed with alcohol, even worst anaesthetic drug, all the more when they are prescribed or administered by a Hollywood rogue Doc.
Doctor Alon Steinberg, a cardiology expert, gives us his opinion on the CNN channel.
But I understand that it would be very difficult, in private practice in Hollywood to say “no” at an international pop or movie super star! And in another hand superstars know to use their fame to get their pills!
