Monday November 22nd on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope everyone is getting ready for the holiday. We have a show tomorrow pretty much dedicated to everything food for Thanksgiving! Medical, historical and just downright fascinating, learn about our history from the perspective of what we ate (and eat!).

Joining us for our first hour is Mary Gunderson, culinary historian and the author of "American Indian Cooking Before 1500: Exploring History Through Simple Recipes" and the "The Food Journal of Lewis and Clark, Repices for an Expedition." Also joining us is Sandy Oliver, a food historian and the co-author of "Giving Thanks: Thanksgiving Recipes and History from Pilgrims to Pumpkin Pie." To help give us a modern perspective, registered dietitian Keri Gans, the author of the forthcoming "The Small Change Diet" will be on with us, too.

We be covering everything from what the Native American ate to dietary problems of the Pilgrims. We'll also be talking about our own Thanksgiving eating.

Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS for any questions on food of Thanksgiving's past, anything that's different about your Thanksgiving meal, or of course, advice on dealing with any problems with heartburn after the meal!

For our second hour, we get back to medical problems and Thanksgiving. Specifically, food allergies. We always here that turkey can make you tired, but can you had a deadly allergic reaction to it? Although rare, true allergies to various birds have been reported. Join me and allergist Dr. Julie Wang of Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York as we speak about food allergy dangers.
