flu-like symptoms wouldn't completely stop the heart or contribute in any factor. I don't think we will really know how she died other than contributing factors. Very sad to hear about her death at such a young age. RIP

kids getting H1N1 have literally been dropping over in their classes = they fall on the floor and an emergency crew must retrieve them = you never know.

Other complications can come on fast with this flu. Get the vaccination, especially if you are young.

Let`s be real here, people. Do normal, healthy 32 year olds drop dead? I like Britney, really I do. She was fabulous in 8 Mile. But her battle with drugs was well documented. She was recently fired from her last movie for blacking out in mid-scene. Sadly, her tiny body was no doubt so worn down by her addiction that any illness, even less subtantial than H1N1, could send her body into a tailspin. Especially her heart, which is an organ greatly affected by drug use. I am sad for Britney and her family. RIP.
