If I got a dollar for every time a patient asked me about MJ sleeping in the chamber I would be rich. If I got a dollar for each time I’ve seen a negative press article about MJ and the chamber I would be richer. So now let’s clear it up once and for all!!! In 1993 Oprah interviewed MJ on video for her show and MJ denied sleeping in the chamber. So my answer to anyone would be “NO” Michael Jackson did not sleep in the chamber! As for those in the press, please do your research-it’s really easy, try http://www.google.com or if you only work by fax, telex, Western Union, or by phone I’m sure they will send you what they have for a small fee.
Here is the article and the transcripts from the interview:

Although this does not prove that he did not sleep in the chamber, it does prove that he “posed in a chamber” that was not at any pressure). As far as proving that he never slept in the chamber I would actually just take his word for it – what choice do we have right?
