The Drs: Stuck Inside Toy Machine
The Doctors wanted to talk about toddlers getting stuck in toy machines. One toddler from Tennessee made news when he somehow climbed into a toy machine in a laundromat within seconds. His grandmother tried to get him out, but he kicked back, determined to stay inside. Ultimately, firefighters had to rescue him, letting him have one toy to take home.
The Doctors were joined by the boy’s mother and grandmother via Polycom. They said he hasn’t yet learned his lesson, because he keeps trying to climb into the machines. The Doctors then surprised the little boy by bringing out a toy machine with Dr Jennifer Berman inside. They explained that he would be getting every toy inside the machine.
What’s the craziest thing your child’s ever done? Can it beat crawling into and getting stuck inside a toy machine?
The Drs: Best Food Combinations
The Doctors said you can make your super foods even more super by combining them. Try combining Brussels sprouts and olive oil in order to bring out more of the Vitamin K. Another good combo is red pepper and black beans, because it can be hard to absorb large amounts of iron if you’re eating a plant-based food. Vitamin C helps you absorb six times more!
Dr Travis Stork then explained that eating salmon with collard greens can be a great combination to get vitamin D and calcium. You can also get Vitamin D from sunlight and “sunlight” was the word of the day. You can use the word sunlight to enter for a chance to win Bistro MD’s five-day meal program for three months, worth more than $2,000.
The Drs: Ice Cream & Hummus Recalls
The Doctors shared their News in 2:00, starting by reporting that a possible listeria contamination has caused two companies to recall products. Sabra’s classic hummus and ice cream from Blue Bell have been pulled off shelves.
Listeria is a bacteria that can spread through contaminated food, creating an infection known as listeriosis. When the infection travels into the bloodstream it can lead to encephalitis. Health officials say that three people have died after eating tainted ice cream from Blue Bell Creameries.
The Drs: Alyssa Milano Breastmilk Seized
Alyssa Milano wasn’t happy when security personnel at a London airport seized 10 ounces of her breast milk. Milano shared a statement that said: “Every ounce of milk I’m able to produce for my child is nothing short of a miracle and to watch that milk be thrown away without any regard for my baby was heartbreaking.”
She was quick to say that airport security was not at fault and that they were just following orders. She feels that airport policies for breastfeeding mothers need to be reconsidered.
The Drs: Bergh Ball ASPCA Fundraiser
The Bergh Ball has become one of the post popular fundraisers and now in its 18th year, the ASPCA event directly benefits the lives of homeless, neglected, and abused animals across the country. This year’s event raised more than $1.4 million. Some of the honorees included Edie Falco and Hilary Swank.
The Drs: Earring Tips
The Doctors shared their Prescription of the Day, which was a way to avoid irritation from earrings. Try coating the earrings in petroleum jelly before you put them in, to put a barrier between the metal and your skin. Nickel allergies are common, so avoid putting them in your ear if you’re allergic.
