Hyponatremia is an abnormally low concentration of sodium in the blood, which can be caused by having too much water in the body. Mayo Clinic, a nonprofit organization for medical practice and research located in Rochester, Minnesota, Jacksonville, Florida, and Phoenix, Arizona, explained that sodium helps regulate the amount of water that surrounds cells and is found at their internal.
A study published in the December 2022 issue of the Clinical Kidney Journal, said the martial arts legend Bruce Lee, who died under mysterious circumstances in Hong Kong in July 1973 at the age of 32, allegedly died of hyponatremia, a specific form of kidney dysfunction.
inability to expel enough water. According to the scientists, among the habits that put him in danger of hyponatremia were the chronic intake of liquids, a diet based on juice, the use of drugs, the consumption of alcohol, the use of marijuana.
the latter, in fact, increases thirst. It is also likely that Bruce Lee had kidney injuries.
Scientists have found a cause for Bruce Lee's mysterious death
Bruce Lee had warned before he died, headaches, cramps, nausea, fatigue, convulsions, up to a swelling of the brain that can lead to death.
Officially Bruce Lee died of brain edema, but it was never really explained why he would have it. Now, a study conducted by Spanish scientists, specialists in the kidneys, has finally put all the pieces together and arrived at the explanation that seems scientifically credible.
The study said: "We hypothesize that Bruce Lee died from a specific form of kidney dysfunction: the inability to excrete enough water to maintain homeostasis. This can lead to hyponatremia, brain edema and death within hours if excessive Water intake is not accompanied by excretion of fluid in the urine.
The fact that we are made up of 60% water does not protect us from the life-threatening consequences of drinking water faster than our kidneys can excrete."
