How did the actor Steve McQueen die?

Answer

Steve McQueen died of a heart attack on Nov. 7, 1980. He died in Juárez, Mexico, where he had been undergoing an unconventional form of cancer treatment. The fatal heart attack occurred as he was recovering from surgery on a tumor.

Steve McQueen had been suffering from mesothelioma, an incurable form of lung cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos. When he was in the Marines, he cleaned asbestos-lined pipes and stripped asbestos lagging from other pipes. When he rode motorcycles, he wore an asbestos-lined racing suit.

The detoxifying cancer treatment he had been receiving, which ultimately proved to be futile, involved an organic diet, massive vitamin dosages, injections of animal cells and coffee enemas.
