What Was The Hidden Cause Of Jackson's Vitiligo And Lupus?

Michael Jackson has brought lots of joy to the world since he began his career as a child singer at his age of 6 in 1964.    He has been the most famous singer since Elvis Presley died in 1977.  Though Jackson died in 2009, his angelic voice and angelic songs are unforgettable.  However, there are some uncanny claims about his death.

In 1993, Jackson revealed in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that he had vitiligo.  Vitiligo is a skin disease characterized by patches of the skin losing their pigment.  Jackson turned from black to white. His vitiligo was confirmed in autopsy.  

Vitiligo is associated with the destruction of skin pigment cells and autoimmune diseases such as thyroiditis.  Young patients with thyroiditis have white hair.  Jackson was also reportedly diagnosed with lupus as well.  

Both vitiligo and lupus have likely made Jackson sensitive to sunlight and put on sunglasses.  Why do your eyes fail to absorb and reflect sunlight?  Why are parasitic fungi called light scramblers?

TYR gene encodes the protein tyrosinase which is an enzyme of the melanocyte that catalyzes melanin biosynthesis.  Tyrosinase is a copper-containing enzyme present in plant and animal tissues that catalyzes the production of melanin.  

Vitiligo is considered an autoimmune disorder due to the presence of autoantibodies directed against melanocyte antigens.  Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when your immune system attacks your own tissues and organs.  It is an autoimmune disease.  

In 2009, Jackson reportedly died from overdoses of propofol and anxiolytic lorazepam suffering a cardiac arrest.  He was given propofol to sleep.   The autopsy also found midazolam, diazepam, lidocaine and ephedrine in his body.  

Propofol is not supposed to be taken when patients have epilepsy, seizure, or a high level of LDL cholesterol.  Why is that so?  What causes sleep disorder, light sensitivity, epilepsy, seizure, high level of cholesterol, lupus, skin or hair pigmentation error, delusion, thyroiditis, cardiac arrest, autoimmune diseases, and early death?
