The Doctors: Preparing For A Natural Disaster
The Doctors reported that the out-of-control wildfire in California has made thousands of families have to leave their homes and one family caught their escape on video. The Doctors said at that point, they should’ve left their home hours ago, given that they were literally driving through the wildfire. Wildfires spread fast and can ignite anything in their path. You may think you’re in a safe spot, but you may not be. Have an emergency plan in place.
The Doctors suggested listening to the local radio and TV stations to get the latest information. You should algo back your car into the driveway so that you can evacuate quickly. Another great tip is to keep your pets in a central location so that you know exactly where they are and can grab them at a moment’s notice. Living things are what matter the most. It’s vitally important to be prepared for emergencies, especially given how muh more common natural disasters have become lately.
If you want to help those affected by the fires, you can donate to the Red Cross. Every donation counts.
The Doctors: One Pill Changed Young Woman’s Life
The Doctors then moved on to talk about another potentially deadly subject, showing a photo of a 16-year-old girl named Amy. A couple of months ago she took one crystallized MDMA pill at a party and passed out, eventually spending two weeks in a coma. MDMA is another name for ecstasy. Amy posted a video of herself on social media after waking from her coma. In the video she manages to say thank you to everyone for their support. She ended up suffering a traumatic brain injury and now will never be the same.
Just one pill, one time, was all it took to forever change Amy’s life. The truth is that when you buy drugs off the street, you don’t really know what you’re getting. The pills could easily be cut with dangerous chemicals. If you’re a parent, never think it can’t happen to your own kids. It’s important to talk to your kids about what they should do when confronted with drugs. As Dr Jennifer Ashton said “that’s a parents’ worst nightmare.”
Have you talked to your kids about alcohol, drugs, and peer pressure?
The Doctors: Death From Silicone Injection
The Doctors then wanted to talk about street cosmetic procedures. A 22-year-old man living in New Jersey had an illegal silicone injection to enlarge his private parts and ended up dying of an embolism. The injector was a 38-year-old New Jersey woman who plead guilty to causing the man’s death. It was ruled a homicide. Overall, basically it’s just not worth it.
