The Drs TV: Eat Your Vegetables
The Doctors announced that it was time we all heeded the advice we give to our kids: eat your vegetables! A new study found that Americans are eating an average of one and a half cups of fruits and vegetables a day, which is half what the USDA recommends. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables is known to reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, chronic lower respiratory diseases, and diabetes.
The higher your intake of fruits and vegetables the lower your risk of cardiovascular disease, and when The Doctors say eat your vegetables, they mean more leafy greens! The word of the day was raw and you can use the word of the day to enter for a chance to win a Vitamix personal blending system. You can start your day off with a smoothie that includes some of your favorite healthy vegetables!

The Drs TV: Clean Your Ear Buds
Dr. Travis Stork explained that fever, pain, dizziness, and hearing loss are symptoms that can result from listening to music with dirty earbuds. Dr. Stork said “your ear can be a petri dish,” especially when you put ear buds in them. They can block out air, creating a hot, humid environment, that can cause staph infections. Dr. Stork suggested to wipe the ear buds off once a week at least to avoid the problem.
