"Tragedy and Conflict Between Medicine and Co$ in JT Death" says M.D. blogger Tragedy and Conflict Between Medicine and Scientology in the Death of Jett Travolta | BuzzFlash.org Submitted by BuzzFlash on Fri, 01/09/2009 - 5:26pm. Reader Contribution A BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION by A BuzzFlash Reader and M.D. It is hard to avoid hearing about the controversy over the death of young Jett Travolta, the 16-year-old son of Hollywood megastars John Travolta and Kelly Preston. Young Jett reportedly died as a result of a seizure disorder, with Jett having been taken off antiseizure medication shortly before his death. Almost immediately, there have been allegations that the couple's adherence to Church of Scientology teachings contributed to the death of their child. So far, the media has seemed unsure how to cover this story, rightfully self-conscious, not wanting to exploit the tragic death of a child or attack his grieving parents unfairly. Sadly, "expert" guests brought forth by the media have often been editors of Hollywood tabloid shows and magazines. Despite extensive coverage, at this point the media does not seem to have asked essential questions and examined and included proper medical perspective on an essentially medical tragedy. From the perspective of my medical training, and from the information that has been released thus far -- Jett Travolta's death appears to have been not only very tragic but also very preventable.
