Another US government conspiracy.

Actually I've always thought that the illness that killed FZ was deliberately inflicted. The question goes to opportunity since I don't think he spent much time (before he became seriously sick) around doctors or hospitals. So I suspect that he may have been poisoned as far back as December/1971 when he was hospitalized in London after Trevor Howell pushed him into the orchestra pit at the Rainbow Theatre.

Yes, this was in the U.K. but Nixon was president and Hoover was still head of the FBI and they both probably detested FZ....so it's possible that agents of the U.S. government were behind it. To avoid suspicion, an injection that created tumors in the prostate gland would've done the trick because it's slow acting and would only cause serious illness years later - and FZ said that he had started feeling bad in the early '80s but by the time it was diagnosed it was advanced to the point that it was inoperable (again because he probably didn't spend much time with doctors/medical staff)
