Not so health concious?

Lately I've seen a lot of famous people either dead or in serious health condition. Like Ely Buendia and Francis M.

Ely Buendia, the genius behind Eraserheads, survived his third angioplasty after the now-legendary reunion of his former band last August 30. Another is Francis Magalona, or Francis M, landed in the hospital because of leukemia. Blood donations from fans and friends flooded the hospital’s blood bank after the announcement was made about his need.

Ely Buendia and Francis Magalona are out of danger now. Ely Buendia is now completing his two-month heart rehabilitation therapy at home. For those who dont have any idea what happened to him (i doubt there is anyone) Ely Buendia was rushed to the hospital because of chest pain and was released a week after.

On the other hand, Francis Magalona stayed in the hospital for about a month-and-a-half and also out of hospital. His cohosts in Eat Bulaga are holding a fund-raising show for him over the weekend.

Close observers of the local music industry are wondering why these two super talented musicians, whose works are already etched in local OPM history, are making trips to hospitals at such a young age on account of potentially fatal diseases.

Could their younger, more decadent, carefree years be blamed?

But the “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll” lifestyle is so ’70s. Even icons from that era, like the now sexagenarian Joey “Pepe” Smith, survived that “unhealthy” lifestyle many times, even serving time in jail.

Are the youth today less conscious of their health? Is it an “emo” thing?

Whatever happens to Buendia and Magalona, their millions of fans are just thrilled that the two are still alive, and hopeful that they and their music will grow old with them.

Whatever the reason may be, this just shows how important it is to take care of your health. And for the fans... why cant you do the same thing for some ordinary people? There are still some hospitals that still needs blood donations from you.
