Monday, February 14, 2011 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio!
Happy Valentines day everybody! We have a special show Monday, where I will broadcast from Sirius Central!
How can you have Valentine's day without candy? Join me and Beth Kimmerle, a chocolate and candy expert and the author of two books on the history of candy, as we talk about the history of candy. Did you know that research from 1928 showed that 1) candy was a food and that 2) you could lose weight with it?
If you have any questions about the history candy (I want to find out who created those little hearts with sayings on them) call us at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.
We are continuing are candy theme for our second half hour as well! I will be joined by The Medicine Hunter, Chris Kilham, who hunts the world looking for traditional, plant based medicines. He is the author of 14 books and the host of the TV show "Medicine Trails." Chris will be talking to us about the new science of cocoa therapy. Is eating chocolate good for you? If so, how much? Listen and find out!
If you have any questions at all about staying healthy with chocolate...or any other natural compounds...give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
What happens when someone decides to leave medicine? Dr. Maggie Kozel the author of “The Color of Atmosphere: One Doctor’s Journey In and Out of Medicine," will be joining us to tell about her journey from Georgetown Medical School, to a Naval Pediatrics practice, to private practice, and then to being a high school chemistry teacher. Find out what she enjoyed about being a practicing physician, what she didn't like, and why she chose to leave.
If you've ever wondered about what your doctor is "really thinking" give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.
We will end the show with "Ask Doctor Ira," where you can ask me any medical questions on any topic at all: anything you forgot to ask your doctor, ask me!"
