The Doctors: What Are Bible Bumps?
One of The Doctors’ own associate producers was in the procedure room with Dr Andrew Ordon as well as Dr Michael Zarrabi. The woman explained that she got what was called a “bible bump” on her hand that felt “fluffy” and although it went down a little, it still felt “gooey” inside. Dr Zarrabi explained that the bump is called a ganglion cyst, and they used to be called bible bumps because they used to take the biggest book they had and smash the bump with it. Dr Zarrabi planned on doing an aspiration, and after numbing her, he placed a needle into the area to get some of the fluid out. There’s still a 30-50% chance that it can come back, but it’s well worth it instead of having the patient undergo the procedure. The goal was to puncture the cyst with several holes to keep it from coming back.
The Doctors: Hilarious 80’s Hair
One thing that didn’t last from the 80’s was the hairstyles. They shared a few pictures of celebrities from back in the day, sporting hilariously bad hair-dos. George Clooney, Nicole Kidman, and Demi Moore all used to sport big, frizzy hair! Even Dr Travis used to sport a bowl cut! Style was the word of the day and you can use the word style on The Doctors’ website to enter for a chance to win the Barbar Eco-8000 blow dryer.
The Doctors: Cough Syrup With Morphine Recalled
For The Doctors’ News in 2:00, it was reported that the FDA has recalled a cough syrup called Licorice Coughing Liquid because of the presence of morphine. The powerful ingredient isn’t listed on the label and the ingestion of morphine without proper supervision can lead to “life threatening consequences.” Master Herbs Incorporated, who makes the syrup, issued a warning that young children with respiratory illness are vulnerable to respiratory depression from opioids and should not be exposed to morphine. The cough syrup was distributed to Chinese grocery stores in California, New Jersey, Illinois, Hawaii, Ohio, and Nevada. The label is printed in Chinese and English.
The Doctors: Volvo Building Death-Proof Car?
In four years, Volvo claims that not one single person will be injured or killed in their new car. The plan behind the pledge includes better air bags and restraints, adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection, sign reading, and an assist to keep the vehicle between lane lines. The death proof claim is risky, with some pointing to the Titanic’s claim of being “unsinkable.”
The Doctors: Martin Shkreli Plead The Fifth
Disgraced former pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli invoked the fifth amendment as a committee looks into the outrageous price hiking of a life-saving drug for HIV and cancer patients. When a senator criticized Shkreli for hindering the investigation, Shkreli Tweeted back “I hav valid justification. Are you serious? I have constitutional rights. No wonder trust in the U.S. Government is at a low.”
The Doctors: Don’t Throw Away Avocado Seeds
Avocados are a must for a healthy diet, but many throw out what could be the most nutritious part of the food! Next time you cut open an avocado, instead of throwing away the seed, cut it up, put it into a blender, and make it part of your smoothie. Dr Andrew Ordon described the flavor as similar to chestnuts.
