Monday, November 11, 2013 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on SiriusXM 81: Doctor Radio!

Happy Veteran's Day everyone.  I would like to say thank you to all of the men and women who serve our great nation and help keep us safe and secure. 

So of course, our first segment is about, well, poison.  The American Museum of Natural History is having a new exhibition about "The Power of Poison."  In addition, they have invited me to be part of the associated lecture series and talk about "Microbes, Toxins and You."  Join me and exhibition curator Dr. Mark Siddall as we talk about poison in the natural world and at the hands of humans.  We will even talk about some of the good of poison (and its not just Botox!)

Poison questions?  Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

After this, we will have Gastroenterology Upate, where I will tell you some of the latest and greatest news from the world of digestive disease (the hot news is clearly in hepatitis C this week) as well as answering your questions on all things GI related.  Give us a tweet or a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

HBO has long had a series of fascinating documentaries.  Join me, as we speak to Ric Esther Bienstock, an Emmy award winning investigative journalist and Canadian Filmmaker, who is here to tell us about her latest investigative project and new documentary film, "Tales From the Organ Trade."  The documentary is currently airing on HBO.  Find out about the black market for organs such as kidneys, corneas and more.  Don't judge until you see this. 

We will end the show with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any questions on any medical topic at all...give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
