Drug poisoning likely claimed Anna Nicole Smith's life
By Carey Goldberg, Globe Staff
If todayís coronerís report is correct, Anna Nicole Smith fell victim to what some researchers consider a growing epidemic of drug poisoning deaths, says Dr. James Wines, an overdose expert at Harvardís McLean Hospital.
The coroner's report said that Smith was taking several different sedatives and sleeping medications along with other drugs.
And consumers should be sure to check with their doctors and pharmacists about whether the various drugs theyíre taking could be dangerous in combination.
