Why Whitney Houston Died
The Untold Story!
By David J. Stewart
Many people were shocked when they first heard that Whitney Houston was found dead in her luxury hotel bathtub just hours before the Music Grammy Awards. Houston had been photographed (see photo below) publicly the night before with her daughter. Houston was drunk and you could see the concern on the faces of those around her.
I certain don't condemn anyone for their faults or sins, for we are all sinners in God's eyes. Albeit, I think if Houston could come back from the grave today, she would warn young people of the dangers of drugs and alcohol. Houston's untimely death was sad and unnecessary...
Why Whitney Houston Died

Whitney Houston's body is taken from her hotel room on Feb. 11, 2012.
The media has no bleepin' clue how to cover the death of Whitney Houston. That's because she was slowly dying for years, and many in the press simply averted their eyes.
It was ultra-disturbing that a beautiful woman blessed with an extraordinary singing voice chose a self-destructive path in full view of the world. I mean, here is a person who signed a $100 million recording contract, actually sold 170 million albums, and commanded high six figures to deliver a 90-minute concert.
O'Reilly to Media: Tell the truth about Whitney and drugs
'Factor' host Bill O'Reilly sounds off on Whitney Houston's death, the media's coverage of celebrity drug addiction, reveals his new project and more
Ms. Houston was a genuine worldwide star, yet was often seen in public disheveled and confused, her substance addiction apparent. The media simply did not know what to say.
We live in a time where addiction is categorized as a disease, and to do what Nancy Reagan once did, urge people to reject narcotics, is considered uncool. How many young performers do we see doing public service announcements warning children to avoid intoxication? Right now, I can't think of one.
The national media prides itself on being non-judgmental unless you are against abortion. Then you are dismissed as "anti-woman" or a religious zealot. But in the arena of personal behavior, there's an excuse for just about every non-violent activity or bad decision.
There is no question that some of us have a history of addiction in our families. There are folks who can use drugs casually and avoid dependence. But they are the exception.
Once a person decides to dabble in cocaine, or opiates like heroin and Oxycontin, they are putting themselves at grave risk. And they know it.
There are legends of famous people who wound up dead just like Whitney Houston. From Elvis Presley to Michael Jackson, the signposts are impossible to miss. No matter how rich and powerful you are, drugs can and will destroy you.
The current medical marijuana ruse is a great example of a society walking away from a responsible position. Ask any drug rehab counselor and he or she will tell you that pot often leads a person to harder drug use and is mentally addictive itself.
Yes, most people can function while stoned. But the more you alter your mind, the more your perspective on life changes. Believe me, I know people who get stoned or drunk every day. They become incredibly desensitized to those around them.
On the kid front, the situation is dire. Once a child enters the world of intoxication, their childhood is gone. Presto—they are jaded. That's how dangerous drugs and alcohol are to immature minds. Society has an obligation to protect its children, not to tacitly accept or embrace mind-altering agents like marijuana.
Whitney Houston, however, was an adult who made a decision to embrace the drug life. Reports say she tried to rehabilitate herself a few times, but you know how that goes. Once a person enters the hell of addiction, there is no easy way out.
And that's how the Whitney Houston story should be covered. As a cautionary tale. Another life vanquished by substance abuse.

MOST people die from LEGAL alcohol and prescription drug overdoses. As you just read, Bill O'Reilly is correct...

Helpful Information to Fight Against Alcohol!
According to CNN medical correspondent Dr. Steve Salvatore...
It doesn't take much
Actually, a driver can be impaired with a U.S. blood-alcohol level as low as .03.
When you drink alcohol, it goes straight from the stomach to the bloodstream. Alcohol can be detected in the blood as fast as five minutes after drinking, and its effects -- most obvious in the central nervous system -- peak in about 30 to 45 minutes.
Alcohol depresses the central nervous system which, in turn, impairs motor function, motor performance, speech and eye movements. These skills are not only slowed down, they are performed more inaccurately. Alcohol also affects the ability to think and reason clearly. -SOURCE
Do you see the great DECEPTION of the .08 BAC legal limit? At just .05 BAC, the human body is already experiencing impairment of coordination. This is serious folks! What is wrong with our legislatures? Are they brain dead? Get this ... our very SAME government which sets the BAC legal limit at .08, also states the following...
"The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) position on the relationship between blood alcohol concentration and driving is that driving performance degrades after just one drink."
Am I missing something here? If the NHTSA (our government) admits that even ONE ALCOHOLIC DRINK degrades a person's driving performance, then why in the name of common sense doesn't our government's lawmakers lower the BAC to equate to ONE DRINK? Tragically, our government leaders are playing games with people's lives, and people ARE DYING!
Alcohol tastes and feels good, but is rotten to the core!
The following helpful chart is from OHS Health and Safety Services Incorporated ...
EXPECTED BLOOD ALCOHOL CONCENTRATION (“BAC”)
BASED ON THE NUMBER OF DRINKS YOU'VE CONSUMED IN A ONE-HOUR PERIOD
Remember- your sex, health, state of mind make all these expectations a bit variable.
BODY WEIGHT IN POUNDS
90 - 109
110 - 129
130 - 149
150 - 169
170 - 189
190 - 209
210 - 229
230 & UP
For the purposes of this chart, “One Drink” =12 oz. Beer or 4 oz. Wine or 1 1/4 oz. 80-Proof Liquor. If you prefer 18 oz. cans of beer or 90-Proof Liquor, you need a different chart!
BAC of .01% to .05%
NOTE THAT FOR MANY PEOPLE, ONLY “ONE” DRINK WILL TAKE THEM TO THIS LEVEL OF DECREASED COORDINATION.
Some-to-great loss of judgment and coordination, thinking dulled, changes in mood and behavior. A BAC of 0.02% at many U.S. companies will require that an employee be relieved of duty for 24 hours and at 0.04 they will be fired. In an organization with a "zero-tolerance" policy as regards alcohol use, you will be fired if you test at 0.001% (which is less than 0.010%)
BAC of .05% to .08%
NOTE THAT EVERYONE HAS REACHED THIS POINT AFTER JUST THEIR 1ST OR 2ND DRINK!
Functioning ability definitely impaired. Walking, speech, and hand movements clumsy. Blurred, split, or tunnel vision may occur. Judgment and equipment operating ability impaired. Chance of accident is greatly increased by up to 300% or more.
BAC of .08% and over
NOTE THAT SOME PEOPLE REACH THIS POINT BY THEIR 2ND DRINK AND ALL HAVE BY THEIR 3RD OR 4TH.
Functioning and judgment very seriously affected. Responses greatly slowed. Behavior greatly affected. Very high risk of accident. In most U.S. States, with a BAC of .08% or higher, you will be arrested if driving a car.
CLICK HERE for the BAC levels in each U.S. State at which you will be (and should be!) arrested if you are caught driving a car while under the influence of alcohol.
As anyone can clearly see from the chart above, having even ONE 12oz. DRINK of beer can cause a person weighing over 200 LBS. to have a BAC of up to .05!!! What strikes me as strange, and a definite double-standard, is that many companies will fire an employee who comes to work with a BAC of .04% or more; but the legal system won't do anything to punish that person for driving under the influence until their BAC hits .08. Why the double-standard? Why are private companies more concerned about their employees than our government's lawmakers are about it's own people who entrusted them to power? Something smells rotten in Washington!
“The saloon is the sum of all villainies. It is worse than war or pestilence. It is the crime of crimes. It is the parent of crimes and the mother of sins. It is the appalling source of misery and crime in the land. And to license such an incarnate fiend of hell is the dirtiest, low-down, damnable business on top of this old earth.” —Billy Sunday
When Will People Learn?
WAIRARAPA TIMES-AGE--August 5th, 2002 | ALCOHOL and speed have again been linked to a serious crash in Wairarapa. The single-car crash occurred about 10.45 p.m. on Saturday night on Upper Plain Road. Both occupants in the car had to cut from the wreckage.
Masterton Senior Sergeant Geoff Reid said the passenger, Bernadette Keen, 46, of Wellington, suffered severe injuries to her left hand after all her fingers were ground off and had to be recovered from underneath the car. She also suffered serious head and chest injuries and is in the neurosurgical ward at Wellington Hospital.
Did you read that? ... “all her fingers were ground off and had to be recovered from underneath the car.” Does that sound like a Miller High Life to you? It appears to me that Budweiser is much DUMBER than wiser. Red Dog? ...you mean "Dead Dog?" The Word of God WARNS us about the deceitfulness of alcohol in Proverb 20:1; but people don't listen ... “Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.” The word "deceived" comes from the Hebrew word “shagah” and means “a deceiver.” Thus, alcohol is a deceiver! The PROOF is in the news, in the statistics, in the broken families, in the emergency rooms, and in the cemetery.

Hypocritical Beer Companies and Lawmakers
Photo to Right: SEATTLE - September 5th, 2005 | A woman was killed in a car crash on Interstate 5. Washington State Troopers suspect alcohol was a factor.
There is a great hypocrisy in America, by the numerous beer producers who propagate the SMOKESCREEN, “Don't drink and drive.” The FACT is that millions of Americans get into their cars and drive away daily after having at least one drink of beer. According to our government's own National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), these drivers are extremely dangerous. That's what the NHTSA said: JUST ONE DRINK degrades a driver's ability to drive properly!
If the beer companies truly meant what they are saying, then they would have their lawyers lobby for laws restricting drinkers from driving at all; but they don't. So while the wealthy beer companies are preaching “live responsibly” and “don't drink and drive”; they are simultaneously doing absolutely nothing to keep people from driving after having one drink of beer. Why don't they put their money where their mouth is?
It's no different than all of the lying Republican presidents who profess to be pro-life concerning abortion. George W. Bush has been hailed as a great humanitarian by ignorant Christians for passing his partial-birth abortion ban, which only prevents women from having abortions during actual labor. You and me both know that 99.99% of all abortions happen long before the actual birth occurs. In fact, the Bush Administration has given a sickening $1,500,000,000 to Planned Parenthood (i.e., Planned Herodhood), the largest provider of abortions in the United States!!! U.S. Republican Presidents are accomplices to abortion.
So you see, we have long been deceived by liars and fraudsters, who claim to be against abortion in order to get the vote of conservatives; but those politicians are in reality as liberal as can be. The beer companies are liars just the same, leading the public to believe that they are genuinely concerned about alcohol-abusive-drivers; yet, they do nothing to stop, or even condemn, the millions of drinkers who drive daily AFTER drinking.
The term “don't drink and drive” implies refraining from drinking alcohol WHILE driving; but it doesn't discourage people from drinking BEFORE they drive. It's crazy, and hypocritical. Police nationwide are paid to enforce laws prohibiting drinkers from commuting with open alcohol containers in their car; but what about the 3-beers they drank BEFORE they started driving? As long as their BAC is .079 or lower, they're considered legally sober, even though the government's own NHTSA states that such drivers are potentially dangerous.
This is a major loophole in the legal system, and the reason why so many people are still being maimed, victimized, and murdered by drivers under the influence. The legal BAC of .08 is a ridiculous joke, a travesty of justice, and a mockery to the entire legislative system. This is all a big game that the wealthy beer companies, their crooked wealthy lawyers, and the gutless wealthy politicians have concocted to sucker the American people. Do you really think that a person with a Blood-Alcohol-Content of .07 is NOT a danger to others? You're out of your mind if you think so!
Drinking Beer is Selfish!
We read in Galatians 5:14 in the Bible, "For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." I just don't understand why anyone would want to risk all the possible dangers associated with consuming alcoholic beverages, except that they don't care about anyone except them self.
In fact, I have to wonder if they even care about themselves. I've stood over the graves of victims of alcohol-impaired-drivers, and I've witnessed the bitter tears by their families as the coffins were lowered into the dirt. The Word of God declares drunkenness a sin (Galatians 5:21). Wherever you find sin and evil in this world—you will also find alcoholic beverages. Sin and alcoholic beverages are inseparable! God calls alcohol “a deceiver” in Proverb 20:1, and you would be wise to run away from it before it makes you regret the day you were born.
"Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise" (Proverb 20:1)

Teens Drink One-Fifth of U.S. Alcohol! | Flying and Alcohol
Beer Soaks America (exposing the lying propaganda of the beer industry)
The above picture speaks 1,000 words. The beer industry hypocritically tells teens not to drink alcohol until they are 21, while those same companies saturate American culture with booze, booze, booze! Consequently, underaged drinking is an epidemic problem in America!
