Monday, May 10th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio!
I hope everyone is having a great Mother's Day. We have a great show planned for tomorrow!
Everyone, at least everyone of a certain age, talks about colon cancer prevention, specifically the dreaded colonoscopy. But did you know that there is no large study looking to see how effective colonoscopy, or any other colon cancer screening test other than checking the stool for blood is...until now! Join me and lead researcher Wendy Atkin, PhD, from Imperial College in London, United Kingdom to talk about her new study showing that a single sigmoidoscopy is effective at significantly cutting colon cancer incidence rates!

Diabetes is difficult enough for adults to manage: imagine being a kid and having to navigate testing and keeping track your blood glucose. Dr. Holly Schachner, a pediatric endocrinologist and the director of medical affairs at Bayer Healthcare, will be joining us to talk about the Bayer Didget...a glucose meter that links with your kids Nintendo DS and makes monitoring glucose much less of a chore.

I can't believe how much time I spend in the office telling people to get and stay in shape: I truly believe that, after not smoking, it is the single most important thing you can do to preserve health and extend lifespan. And now, there's a plan for all of America to get fit. Dr. Russel Pate and Dr. Robert Sallis, the co-chairs of the National Physical Activity Plan. Hear about plans to help make you and other American's more fit, and more healthy.
