drug addiction[edit]

The lead says he abused drugs for several years...implying 3-4 years...there is no clear cut definition of several but it implies his addiction wasn`t a life time thing which it was...the word several should be dropped...perhaps replaced with many. (talk) 17:07, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

I agree with that. Long-time drug abuse was the underlying cause of virtually all of his health problems and the lead should not give the impression of downplaying.MackyBeth (talk) 09:49, 5 April 2017 (UTC)


"Whether or not combined drug intoxication was in fact the cause, there is little doubt that polypharmacy contributed significantly to Presley's premature death." should taken off as it is based on nothing but speculation. It is particularly shocking after Dr. Joseph Davis' statement who confirms Elvis died of a natural cause. This phrase is now mistakenly often added as part of Dr Davis' statement which it is not. As already said, everything in the autopsy points out to a sudden death caused by a massive heart attack. Countless members of Elvis' family, especially on his Mother's side, died at a young age due to heart related illness. They died at the same age Elvis did or even younger and most of them never took any medication. To assert that "there is little doubt that polypharmacy contributed significantly to Presley's premature death" is pure conjecture.
