The Doctors: Fran Drescher Cancer Schmancer
A day of surprises continued on The Doctors, when Dr Stork was interrupted by a surprise celebrity guest: Fran Drescher! As some may know, Fran is not just an actress, but also a Uterine Cancer survivor. Five years ago, Fran founded her organization, Cancer Schmancer, which she discussed with The Doctors.
But first, Fran had a question: is it true that the smell of cucumber and licorice can be an enhancer? Dr Masterson revealed that this is in fact true. Just like sight or touch, smell is a sense that can increase blood flow.
The Doctors got to see a clip of Fran on her hit comedy, Happily Divorced. Catch the show when it airs on TV Land Wednesday nights.
Fran Drescher: “Trash Cancer” Campaign
Fran and her organization, Cancer Schmancer, have a new campaign called “Trash Cancer.” Fran is encouraging people to find out what is in the products that they use every day in an attempt to get healthier. As Dr Stork pointed out, it’s crucial to eat right and exercise, but knowing what you’re putting into your environment can also make a huge difference in cancer prevention.
The Doctors: Does Fat Free Milk in Coffee Make You Look Younger?
Mark L. Wahlberg returned with another edition of “Myth or Reality?” on The Doctors. He asked: is it true that drinking coffee with fat free milk will make you look younger? Unfortunately, that’s a myth– if only it were that easy!
The Doctors: How to Avoid Coffee Stained Teeth
In fact, Dr Stork revealed a surprising reality concerning fat-free milk: it can actually stain your teeth. Of course, coffee is known to have antioxidants that are good for you, and you don’t want to load it up with calorie-rich milk or cream. But going totally fat-free in your coffee is not such a great idea if you want whiter teeth. Just a bit of fat, like in 2% milk, will actually help to combat the effects of staining.
The Doctors: Croup Cough Success Story
On a day full of surprises, not even The Doctors themselves are immune! The Doctors were thrilled when Allison and her son, Jake, stopped by the studio to share an incredible story and say ‘thank you.’
Allison had seen an episode of The Doctors in which Croup Cough symptoms were described; it sounds like a barking seal. Incredibly, watching this episode ended up saving her son’s life. When Jake later became sick at nine months old, Allison recognized the symptoms of Croup Cough and took him to the hospital. At the hospital, Jake suffered respiratory failure; if he hadn’t already been there, the results could have been tragic.
Allison and Jake appeared to thank The Doctors in person. Dr Stork told Allison that it wasn’t the show, but she herself who saved Jake’s life. She paid attention and made the right decisions so that Jake’s story could be a happy one.
