Elvis Presley
Elvis Presley (1935-1977), American singer and actor. Elvis was referred to as the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll due to his prominent influence on the musical genre. The singer was a symbol of teenage rebellion, and his style caused a great amount of controversy in the late 1950’s. Frank Sinatra said of Elvis at the time, “His kind of music is deplorable, a rancid smelling aphrodisiac. It fosters almost totally negative and destructive reactions in young people.” Regardless of his adversaries, Elvis had an outstandingly successful career in music and television, and has been inducted to four music halls of fame. He is regarded as one of 20th century pop culture’s most important figures.

Elvis is known to have suffered from severe insomnia and drug addiction. According to his wife, Pris...View full story

26 Aug 2011 Elvis should be a poster child for drug abuse and addiction. Surrounded by people who didn't have the guts to confront him, left behind by people who pretty much took him to the cleaners (Priscilla, et al) Elvis never did manage to get his problem under control. Any addict knows that they're the last one to recognize a problem, and facts show he never really believed his use to be problematic. Had he been confronted by loved ones at a critical point he may have changed. My point here is that people believe Presley was either weak and stupid about his problem, or, even moreso, a victim of those around him (cash cow theory). Truth is, both were in play in his life. You can't point the finger (or give him it) at Dr. Nick. Or at Presley. Once your strung out on drugs your life becomes a mess, and, even Elivs couldn't get righted. Some folks out there who tend to blame everything from habits to work record on that person give Presley a pass about drugs abuse and blame it on those around him. I believe he could have rehabed out of the mess had he been forced to see the end was near. There were addiction centers then, just not as many nor as well promoted. Elvis could have gone anywhere, private center, etc, and dried out.

Health tip of the day:
You might be able to avoid the H1N1 virus, regular flu and the common cold this winter by exercising every day. Exercise gives your immune system a boost, says Dr. David Nieman, director of Appalachian State University's Human Performance Lab in North Carolina. According to Dr. Neiman, two kinds of immune cells circulate more freely in the blood when you excercise, neutralizing pathogens. The effect only lasts for a few hours, but the benefits are cumulative, adding up to a generally stronger immune system. People who walked "briskly" for 45 minutes a day, at least five daysa week for 12 to 15 weeks, reduced their sick days by 25 to 50 percent compared to couch potato controls in his study.
