The Doctors: Is 72 the New 30?
Could 72 be the new 30? The Doctors visited with several active seniors to learn the secrets to a long, happy life. Vera, 78, surrounds herself with people she loves and plays the trombone in a Dixie band. Edgar, 93, walks twice a day, but still indulges in his favorite guilty pleasure, the martini. Marilyn, 83, plays bingo four times a week and loves to shop as often as she can.
The Drs: Japanese and Swedish Secrets To Long Life
Researchers at an institute in Germany said that 72 is the new 30 because modern medicine is allowing us to live longer and healthier lives. In the study, Japanese and Swedish men were examined because they have the longest life expectancies. They have far more active lifestyles and their diets involve healthy foods such as fish.
Dr. Andrew Ordon suggested that we stop eating before we feel full, while Dr. Jim Sears stressed the importance of laughing every day.
The Doctors: Dr. Travis Stork Birthday
The Doctors shared a fake story about Australian kids not being allowed to blow out their birthday candles, which was actually a birthday surprise for Dr. Travis Stork. On March 9 2013, Dr. Travis will turn 41-years-old. The Doctors producers and staff members all thanked Dr. Travis for his dedication to his patients and audience alike, his inspiring advice and even his sweet dance moves.
The Doctors revealed an amazing cake featuring Dr. Travis participating in his favorite activity, mountain biking. Cake Divas created the spectacular cake and cupcakes for the audience members. Dr. Travis may be a year older, but he still looks very handsome, even in his cheesy birthday cake hat.
