Monday, December 13th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio

The holidays are getting close. The parties have started, and, if it wasn't for that cough that seems to be affecting New York, the office would be getting a bit quieter. A perfect time to think about nutrition! OK, maybe not, but its never to early to get ready for New Years Resolutions.

We have been talking a lot about probiotics and the hygiene hypothesis on the show. Its an important topic. Which brings us to the next question...what's the story with using probiotics in kids? Joining me to talk about this is University of Wisconsin at Madison Pediatrician Dr. Frank Greer. Dr. Greer is the co-author of Clinical Report on Probiotics in Children that is in the current issue of "Pediatrics."

My favorite kitchen utensil is my deep fryer. I know its unhealthy, but its crispy brown goodness calls my name. Every now and then I'll take a Twinkie, dip it in pancake batter, and throw it in. Which brings me to my next topic: The Twinkie Diet. Dr. Mark Haub lost 27 pounds on a diet consisting of junk food. Join me and Registered Dietician Keri Gans as we find out what this is all about.
