We were so saddened to hear that Robin Gibb had slipped into a coma due to a battle with pneumonia, colon and liver cancer.

Before all the health issues, though, Robin was actually working on a bucket list according to a close friend.

Here's what the friend said:

New Details On Robin Gibb's Hospitalization

Filed under: Music MinuteHealth

We previously mentioned that Robin Gibb from the Bee Gees was recently hospitalized.

He is back in the hospital even though he was recently dismissed.

He's been fighting what many assume is cancer, has been on chemotherapy and had a tumor removed from his colon.

Now we've found out why he's back in the hospital.

It seems the culprit was most likely a twisted intestine, the same congenital defect his twin brother died of at age 53.

He's in good care so hopefully he pulls through this.

Feel better!

Robin Gibb Recovering After 6-Day Hospital Stay

Filed under: HealthInjury

Robin Gibb

Robin Gibb, member of the legendary Bee Gees, is at home recovering after a length hospital stay last week.

The musician spent 6 days in treatment for an inflammation of the colon, but was released last week, at which time his spokesman said:

"Robin Gibb has been discharged from the hospital today where he had been treated since last Thursday for inflammation of the colon. He is at home recovering and plans to slowly resume work over the next couple of days."

He must be recovering well because he was already out and about in London on Monday for a television appearance to promote his newest single.

Feel better, Robin!

No Scientific Evidence Colon Cleansers Improve Health

Filed under: Health

Colon Cleanser

Yes, that's right. You may have been pumping water up your rectum in vain.

After reviewing 20 different studies on colon cleansers published over the last decade, scientists have found no evidence that they actually improve your health.

On the contrary, scientists found more evidence that they can actually be HARMFUL and associated with bloating, vomiting, cramping, renal failure and even death.

Yikes!

These popular procedures — whether undergone with the help of a professional or with some kind of a colon cleanse kit at home — are meant to clear your body of toxins that accumulate in the colon, which can spur a variety of ills.

However, the American Medical Association said that the "procedure was invalid" in the early 20th century and many modern concoctions don't require FDA approval.

Sources have reported that having a "colon hydrotherapist" pump water in and out of the rectum with a rubber tube has the potential to damage the colon tissue.

Regardless of the study's findings, there are still those who swear by the benefits of a good ol' colon cleanse and insist more studies are needed before people condemn it.

The choice is yours, but make sure you go to a licensed professional if you do decide to opt for a cleanse.
