Monday, February 1st, 2010 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio

It is freezing here. And the Pro Bowl will be played before the Superbowl this weekend: which is kind of more silly than the Pro Bowl already was. So forget sports and weather and think Doctor! We have an excellent show planned for you guys this week.

I have been on an exercise kick for the past 10 months. Personal trainer, more gym time, all that stuff. I hope it keeps me alive and healthy because I'd rather be listening to the radio. But now Dr. Jeffrey Horowitz, PhD, of the University of Michigan Kinesiology Institute and a fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine, will come on the air and explain his new study that shows, when it comes to weight, calories and exercise, its not only how much, but when. You might want to workout before every meal after hearing what he has to say!

If you have any questions on exercise, diet or how the two interact, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

One of things that I really like to do on the show is talk about how basic research (test tubes, labs, stuff like that), besides being sort of cool, opens the door to many of the cures and treatments that we have in medicine. Dr. John White of McGill University in Montreal, who is an expert in gene regulation and the possible anti-cancer effects of vitamin D, will be joining us to talk about his latest research. This shows that Vitamin D use may actually cut the inflammation that occurs in Crohn's disease! We'll also talk about the potential uses of vitamin D for anti-cancer and other preventative purposes.

If you've wondered about vitamin D levels and a wide variety of health problems, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

Its Superbowl week! New Orleans and Indianapolis are getting ready to play, and, as soon as I write this, I'm heading to Costco to buy paper goods, chips and other stuff for my Super Bowl Party. Keri Gans, registered dietitian, Doctor Radio will be coming on to talk to us about a healthy Super Bowl. I will tell her about my giant cold cut sandwiches. She may tell me about lettuce that is not actually on a sandwich. This should be fun. Call with your Super Bowl Party Tips (healthy and otherwise) at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

Of course, we will have Ask. Dr. Ira, where you can ask me any medical or gastronetrological question at all: we answer them all! at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
