    38 is too young. Very sad to hear this.

    38 and several heart artery blockages? That's fucked up. I can't tell if that would be the real COD but surely his drug addiction had to factor. Coke addiction sounds probable.

    Or genetics. Drugs will fuck up your heart but I doubt they’ll block your arteries.

    Hmm, I looked it up and here's what I found:
    The more prominent drugs associated with cardiovascular disease are the stimulants and opioid drugs. These may increase the risk of vascular and/or heart disorders by disrupting the balance of certain neurotransmitters, called catecholamines, in the body and brain. This may lead to dose dependent changes in blood pressure, abnormalities in the normal rhythms of the heart or blood vessels, increased blood clotting and increased arterial plaque formation3. This may result in abrupt, albeit often temporary, deteriorations in patients with conditions related to these effects3. However, this may increase the risk of serious events such as heart attacks, especially with long standing abuse.
    So, if their info is legit (and the citations do look credible), it's possible the drugs helped clog his arteries if he was a long-term habitual stimulant/opioid user. At any rate, way too young.

    Drugs can junk up your arteries just like cheeseburgers.

    Pink Taco Founder Harry Morton's Estate Worth At Least $17 Million

    The estate of the late Pink Taco founder, Harry Morton, is worth at least $17 million ... TMZ has learned.

    Harry's father, Peter Morton, just filed legal docs, obtained by TMZ, to take control of his son's estate ... and the docs say Harry had over $17 million in personal property when he died.

    According to the docs, Harry's personal property is worth $17,293,187 ... but the total value of the estate could be higher if there are any separate trusts that are not part of the probate estate.

    TMZ broke the story ... Harry was found dead in his Los Angeles residence back in November, this after suffering a heart attack. Harry, who had no partner or children, died without a will.

    Harry founded the popular restaurant chain in 1999 when he was only 18. He was also the owner of the Hollywood nightclub, Viper Room.
