I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. I have already started my post holiday/pre holiday diet and am getting ready for tomorrow's show.

Then, Star Wars. No I have not seen the newest movie yet. But I do have a guest who knows just what those characters are thinking and feeling. Join me and Dr. Travis Langley as we talk about the psychology of Star Wars!
Didn't call or tweet for the first part of the show. Worry not! We will end the show with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any medical question on any topic at all: anything you forgot to ask your doctor ask me! Give me a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS or send it to Facebook.

Happy Thanksgiving! As you get ready for the long drive and the big gathering, think about all the excellent medical facts you can share around the table after listening to the show Monday.
Starting with scurvy. I know, you're thinking about 17th century sailors. But scurvy exists in the United States in 2015! Learn about this from Dr. Eric Churchill from Baystate Medical Center and Dr. Laura Pimentel, Chairman of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Upper Chesapeake Health Services in Maryland.
Milk allergies can be a huge problem in children. Join us as I interview Dr. Hugh Sampson, MD FAAAAI, who is the principal investigator of the first randomized trial looking at Omalizumab as a treatment for patients with severe milk allergy.

Which has more bacteria: a man's apartment or a woman's? The answer 9 AM ET Mon. on @nyudocs @siriusXM w/ Dr. Gerba— Ira Breite (@doctorira) November 16, 2015
Questions about your blood pressure (or the side effects of your blood pressure medication?) Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

After our excellent talks on the microbiome and antibiotic resistance, I thought it would be great to get some real world germ examples. Join me and Dr. Charles Gerba of the University of Arizona in Tuscon as we talk about where germs lurk. Some questions to ponder: Which has more bacteria: a man's apartment or a woman's? Whose desk has more bacteria. And what is living on toothbrushes, grocery bags and in your kids school desk (this one I don't even want to think about).
We'll end the show with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any question on any medical topic and I'll be happy to answer. Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

We have a lot to talk about tomorrow, starting with allergies in kids. While sometimes its just a rash, there are a significant number of anaphylaxis cases being seen in kids: many who didn't have a prior episode of this potentially deadly problem Join me and Dr. Martha White, MD, CPI, the research director at the Institute for Asthma and Allergy in Maryland, as we talk about the Epipen4schools survey funded by Mylan Pharmaceuticals.
Then its time for Gastroenterology Update, where we will talk about E. coli at Chipotle, as well as answering your questions on all things digestive at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
Being a patient is awful. One thing that can help is better doctor/patient communication. Although I like to think the +SiriusXM Doctor Radio is one answer, there needs to be a lot more done. Join me, Dr. Valentin Fuster, Dr. Herschel Sklaroff, and filmmaker Muffie Meyer will be joining me to talk about her new film, Making Rounds.
