In Los Angeles in the courtroom of Michael Jackson's personal physician, said that before the death of Michael gone without sleep for a full 60 days. It turns out that more than two months, Jackson took propofol, and anesthetics to overcome insomnia, as was going to recover and return to the world of show — business.
However, under the influence of drugs Jackson only felt well rested, in fact, his dream was very superficial. So the doctor is sure that Michael died not because of an overdose of sedative drugs, but because of lack of sleep and relaxation. "If you eat dinner instead of cellulose pellets — your stomach will be full and you will not be hungry, but your body does not receive any of the calories it needs to recuperate and fully operational. The same goes for sleep "- said the doctor.
