Is it possible that Michael Jackson was suffering from mercury toxicity when he died?
Yes, I think so.
Here’s why I say this.
He had terrible insomnia and was very thin, both of which are symptoms of mercury toxicity.
Where could the mercury have come from?
The FDA limits the amount of mercury in cosmetic products to 1 ppm, however, a study of 549 skin-lightening products found that 3.3% of skin-lightening creams purchased in the US were found to contain 1000 ppm mercury.
Here is a 3-minute video talking about this.

Michael Jackson had terrible insomnia.
He could not fall asleep and begged his doctor to give him drugs to put him to sleep.
The doctor kept giving him more and more drugs until the drugs ultimately killed him.
Michael Jackson was very thin
Michael Jackson was also very thin—either 136 lbs or 112 lbs, depending on who you believe.
Both of these are symptoms of mercury toxicity.

3.3% of skin-lightening creams found to have at least 1000 times more mercury than the FDA says is safe
How could Michael Jackson have become mercury toxic?
From using skin-lightening creams.
A 2014 study found that of the skin-lightening creams that they purchased in the US, 3.3% were found to contain 1,000 parts per million, while the FDA says that cosmetic products should not contain more than 1 part per million.
