The Doctors: Ice Cream Weight Loss Trend
The Doctors investigated a new diet fad where people are eating five pints of vegan ice cream in four days and claiming they’re losing enormous amounts of weight. Is this for real? It turns out, it is. The problem is that you’re basically starving yourself, because the vegan ice cream is very low-calorie. You’ll lose weight, but you’re not giving your body the vital nutrients it needs. For example, protein. There’s no protein in the vegan ice cream, which makes this a real problem health-wise. But you already knew that. Don’t eat ice cream to lose weight. Life isn’t a 10-year-old’s day dream. In real life, eating this much ice cream is just bad news.
The Drs TV: Surviving A Bee Attack
Are you worried about bee attacks? Bees are already becoming a problem across the country, as killer bee attacks have caused several people in different incidents around the U.S. some serious health issues.
So what should you do if you get swarmed by bee attacks? The Doctors talked to L.A. County Bee Keeper’s Association member Stacy, who said that unless bees are severely disturbed, bee attacks are unlikely. But if you have this happen to you, the most important thing is to run away as fast as you can as far as you can. Some bees will follow you for up to half a mile, so get ready to run. Jumping under water might not help, either. A lot of bees will wait for you to come back up from the water. Stacy said they’re likely to attack your mouth, so if you’re gasping for air, you might get a bunch of stings in your mouth.
If you get stung, make sure not to squeeze out the stinger. That will just release more poison into your system. You need to scrape it off with your fingernail or a credit card. If you feel your throat start to close up or if you feel a rash across your body, make sure to get to an emergency room right away.
The Doctors: Cerebriform Mole Removal
A viewer named Kristen sent in a question to The Doctors about her bulbous mole, which looked brain-like. It’s called a cerebriform mole, and it’s pink in color and bubble-like in shape. The Doctors asked Dr. Sandra Lee to take a look at Kristen’s mole. Dr. Sandra Lee said it was benign, but she wanted to remove it. So she numbed the area and cut it off with a special pair of scissors. When she cut into the mole, the audience gasped. “Oh, she’s numb, guys. Come on, now,” Dr. Sandra Lee said. Obviously, Dr. Lee was not fazed by removing gross moles all the time.
Kristen didn’t know what the mole was, but she had it for 15 years. She was worried it could be skin cancer. Dr. Lee said that people should get their moles checked out if something bleeds, grows, changes, or looks strange to them.
