The Doctors: Too Big To Get Fit?
Could you be too fat for fitness? Many people have complained that when they pay a visit to the gym, they’re mocked or discriminated against by fit and slim staff. That happened to a pole dancer and fitness instructor who witnessed what she calls “the dark side of fitness.” At 224 pounds, Roz took her award-winning pole-dancing act to America’s Got Talent where she was cruelly dismissed by judge Howard Stern who suggested that she was a “joke” and no one would hire her because she was “too big.”
The Doctors welcomed “the Diva” Roz to the show. Roz said it took her eight years to get where she’s at, and simply had an unwillingness to give up. The Doctors wanted some lessons themselves! Roz is clearly a strong, muscular woman who is fit. Roz said “you are never too fat, too old, too out-of-shape, or too anything else to enjoy the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.”
Roz said if you’re faced with fat shaming, just keep going. You also surround yourself with people who are educated about what you’re trying to accomplish because a support team is so necessary. She’s being that for her clients and students. Roz said for every one negative comment she gets about her weight, she gets about 5,000 positive ones from people all over the world saying that she inspired them. You’re never too fat for fitness!
The Doctors: 80-Year-Old Blackhead
Dermatologist Dr Sandra Lee was back for more as “Dr Pimple Popper.” Dr Lee brought with her a new video of an 80-year-old woman with a black head on the side of her face. After making a small incision, Dr Lee pulled out a pretty good amount of gunk from the inside, shocking the woman. The blackhead had literally calcified and now her skin looks like it was never even there!
Dr Lee then showed a video of a man who had a burn on his hand that resulted in a water blister thta was the size of half his palm. After it was punctured, the liquid squirted out.

The Doctors: Baby Born With Two Noses
Next, The Doctors shared the video of a baby that was recently born in Peru with two tubes where his nose should’ve been. The news media calls him “the baby with two noses” and it’s a result of a very rare genetic syndrome that happens in one of every 15,000 babies, and babies born with the condition have a low survival rate, although the baby seems to be doing well right now, getting the care he needs. Dr Ashon explained that “midline” deformities occur somewhat often, where there’s a space that didn’t form.
The Doctors: Does Turkey Really Make You Tired?
For The Doctors’ News in 2:00, they wanted to confront concerns over turkey making you tired. There’s an amino acid found in turkey that is converted into seratonin in the body, which regulates sleep, but it doesn’t necessarily make you tired. That whole “tired after eaating Thanksgiving turkey” idea comes from eating too much food!
