Soul Legend Bobby Womack Dead At 70, Cause of Death Unknown

(AllHipHop News) Bobby Womack beat cancer, but today (June 27th) he has left the fight. Earlier today, reports surfaced that Bobby Womack had passed away at the age of 70.

While the causes of his death are unknown, Womack battled with suspected colon cancer since early 2012. On May 23rd, 2014, Womack underwent surgery to remove a tumor, which was revealed to be cancer-free. In January of 2013, it was revealed that Womack was suffering from early stage Alzheimer’s disease.

Womack’s last performance was at Bonaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, TN on June 14th. Womack was scheduled to begin touring in Europe starting July 19th at Paradiso Grote Zaal in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

AllHipHop will update the story as more details emerge.

    You do know that exercise releases endocannabinoids, right? Also, fasting for more than three days regeneerates the nervous system. Fasting for ten days can destroy cancer. If you combine these with cannabis you could have an even stronger effect. Even without cannabis you can cure cancer if you stop eating the junk food they sell us. The food is really the cause of cancer. The food and the toxins in the environment. We don’t even eat real food anymore, we eat imitation food.

      Only issue I have with exercise, is that most won’t do it, and for those that do, use it to justify the inevitable “reparticipation” that the exercise is supposed to help eliminate in the first place. It’s almost like being on a treadmill(pardon the pun), while moving, but really going no where. Great post!

      • Joshua

        Exercise is a complex topic, but the most important thing is to not sit too much during the day. All you have to do is walk. If you can walk 16 hours a day dedicated exercise gets very easy

        Law of inertia. No doubt;-)

        peace bro

    Goodbye, Bobby. Respect.

    Abso,f’ing,lutely!! We can also acquire this, and mass produce it ourselves. Joshua had some great points also. Leave the devil’s sandbox, and these cancers “miraculously” disappear. Great post!
