The Doctors: Ketchup VS Ranch Dressing
It was time for my favorite Doctors segment: Which is Worse? Dr Travis Stork and Dr Andrew Ordon first looked at ketchup and ranch dressing. If you ask me, I would say that ranch dressing is worse than ketchup but what do you think? Dr Travis explained that ketchup is made from tomatoes which has lycopene, but sugar is often the second ingredient in ketchup. Ranch dressing is often made with partially hydrogenated oils which are bad fats. Dr Travis would reach for the ketchup if he had to choose, but said, once again, it’s all about moderation!
The Doctors: Pancakes VS French Toast
Next, they looked at pancakes versus french toast. Again, I would guess the french toast, but what do you think? Research from the USDA at seven different chain restaurants actually found that pancakes were the better choice! Three pancakes is approximately 225 calories while three pieces of french toast is approximately 450 calories, but that can obviously vary widely depending on size, ingredients, and other factors. Dr Travis actually enjoys both pancakes and french toast, but makes both using whole grains.
The Doctors: Self Defense Tips
The Doctors then moved on to report that according to Amnesty International, one out three women will experience violence during her lifetime. The Doctors welcomed the highest-ranking female officer in LAPD history, chief of police in Hermosa Beach, Sharon Papa. Sharon said when women are walking to their cars, they should avoid being distracted by doing things such as talking on the phone. If you’re walking to your car in a parking lot or garage, walk confidently and look around, letting anyone you see know you saw them by making eye contact with them.
If you carry pepper spray with you, it’s pointless if it’s in your purse. You want to have it ready in your hand if you’re walking to your car or you’re out running. They even make Blingsting, which is pepper spray that is blinged out to make it look cute! Don’t wait until after something happens to take precautions, so consider taking a simple self defense course.
