Was the brain explosion in fact the result of a combination of secret medications Lee was taking, as claimed by medical expert Chuck Norris? Did the cannabis Lee had imbibed play a role, as claimed by Hong Kong doctors in defiance of all medical fact? Was he murdered by the Triads, who'd wanted him dead ever since he was a teen and on a police list of troublemakers for his street fighting? And he died at his mistress's -- did she kill him with her homicidal vagina, and if so, did he die with an erection, as a tabloid reporter bribed a morgue worker to determine?
There's one cause of cerebral edema that wasn't considered at the time, and wasn't given much attention in the '70s at all: heatstroke. That would be consistent with Lee's symptoms, and the most notable thing about the two days he got an edema was how hot it was. According to a biography of Lee that came out last year, he was vulnerable to heatstroke for an unusual reason: He'd had his sweat glands surgically removed because he didn't like how his wet armpits looked on camera. OK, can we go back to thinking he was murdered by gangsters while hard and high?
