The Drs: Dangerous Water Tubing
The Doctors shared a video of a man soaring about the water in a flying innertube. The tube then flipped upside down, sending the man plunging into the water, and he later revealed horrible bruises on the back of his legs. Dr Travis Stork said never, ever try that! That particular tube craft has been banned at a lot of lakes because of lack of control. Dr Stork said he clearly got a lot of volume in the video though! “Volume” was the word of the day and you can use the word volume to enter for a chance to win a Voloom volumizing iron.
The Drs: Kybella Double Chin Injection
The Doctors then shared their News in 2:00, sharing that U.S. consumers spend more than $1 billion a year on cosmetic facial injections, and that number will soon jump because the FDA just approved Kybella, which is an injection designed to melt away “double chin fat.” The drug destroys fat cells but won’t tighten loose skin. Kybella is only approved for injection in that area and could cause bruising, swelling, or tightness in the target area. More serious side effects could be nerve injury or muscle weakness.
The Drs: Sofia Vergara-Nick Loeb Embryo Debate
The Doctors then shared that Sofia Vergara‘s new movie Hot Pursuit opens soon. Her ex, Nick Loeb, is “in hot pursuit” of bringing the two female embryos they created together to term and raising them himself. Loeb said he would “take on full parenting responsibilities and agree to have [Sofia] declared an egg donor.”
In 2013 the couples signed a form that stated “that any embryos created could be brought to term only with both parties’ consent.” Vergara’s attorney said, in part, “[Vergara] never wanted to destroy her embryos…[and] is content to the leave the embryos frozen indefinitely.”
Loeb said, “This is not just about saving life; it is also about being pro-parent.”
Do you think Nick has a right to the embryos or is Sofia right to stand strong?
The Drs: Demo Lovato OB/GYN Asking For Autographs?
During a recent interview with ZM Online, Demi Lovato spoke out about some inappropriate gynecological exams. She shared that she’s had gynecologists ask her for an autograph, which obviously makes for an uncomfortable situation. Of course, always report any inappropriate behavior to your state medical board.
The Drs: Eat More Oatmeal!
The Doctors then shared their prescription of the day, which was to eat more oatmeal! Just 1.2 ounces of whole grains a day can result in a 17% reduced risk of premature death. As well as lower risks of cancer and diabetes. You can add chopped apples, walnuts, a cinnamon, or even almond butter or peanut butter with banana. You can also use unsweetened cocoa powder, honey, and dark chocolate chips to your oatmeal. You can find great recipes for oatmeal in The Doctor’s Diet Cookbook.
What’s your favorite way to enjoy oatmeal?
