(Newser) – The seizure that landed Demi Moore in a hospital this week was apparently triggered by "whip-its." TMZ talked to sources who say that the actress was inhaling nitrous oxide for a cheap, quickie high; a friend at Moore's home became concerned and called 911. The 49-year-old actress was “shaking” and otherwise “acting like she was suffering from a seizure,” a source told E! News. The gas is usually obtained from whipped cream cannisters and provides a sudden, intense high.
