Was Andy Rooney killed by his surgery?
by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer
(NaturalNews) The infamous media writer Andy Rooney died last week after undergoing surgery for an undisclosed, but reportedly minor, condition. Though he was 92 years old, Rooney was not known to be sick prior to this minor surgery -- but somehow the medical procedure went awry, which resulted in the rapid demise of the often-controversial 60 Minutes commentator.
Whether you loved him or hated him, it is undeniable that Andy Rooney had become a type of American media legend. And while many of those paying tribute to his life after his passing have a lot of good things to say about him, one glaring segment that is missing from such reports concerns the circumstances surrounding his mysterious death.
Why did an otherwise healthy man suddenly die after being admitted to the hospital for a minor surgery? What were the "major complications" that arose following this minor surgery, and how were they able to progress so badly that they ended up killing him?
Throughout the past several years, NaturalNews has covered the many celebrities and other prominent figures that have died from things like prescription drug overdoses and conventional treatments for serious conditions like cancer. In many of these cases, their cause of death could be traced back to the treatment rather than the disease.
While nobody knows for sure why Andy Rooney went in for surgery, it is clear from media reports that the issue was minor and not life threatening. And even though nobody in the media seems all that concerned with investigating the incident further, it is also clear that something went terribly wrong during Rooney's surgery that ended up killing him.
Rooney was very private with his personal life and medical history, which is perhaps why the media is leaving the surgery issue alone. But it only seems right that the issue be addressed -- after all, if there was some type of medical malpractice involved, does not the world deserve to know the truth?
A 2010 study published in the British Journal of Surgery found that roughly 25 percent of patients end up in worse shape after surgery than they were before surgery (http://www.naturalnews.com/030839_surgery_pa...). And another more recent study out of Harvard University found that many surgeries performed on seniors are unnecessary, and they often correspond with increased mortality (http://www.naturalnews.com/034013_hospital_p...).
Was Rooney the victim of a conventional medical procedure that was dangerous and unnecessary for a man of his age?
