Monday, July 19th on the Doctor Ira Breite Show, Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio

Happy Summer! We have a great show planned for tomorrow, with an emphasis on the environment.

We are going to start off with a new study showing a relationship between inflammatory bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, and air pollution. We have been exploring the relationship between environmental factors and a variety of disease, including inflammatory bowel diseases, on the show, for a while. I am really excited that my colleague, Dr. Ian Lustbader, will be joining me to discuss this fascinating issue.

If you have any questions at all about Crohn's disease or colitis give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

Speaking of diseases whose incidence has been increasing in recent years our next segment will be about peanut allergy. Peanut allergy is a miserable thing not only for the person who has it, but also for their family, friends and classmates as well. Join me and Dr. Julie Wang of the Mount Sinai Medical Center here in New York City as we discuss her research on using Chinese herbs to help treat peanut allergies.

If you or a loved one is plagued by food allergies, now would be a great time to give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

There is an environment of sex that surrounds teenagers. And if you, like me, have a teenage son, it can be a little confusing (and embarrassing) to have the "discussion" with him. Because nowadays its more than the birds and the bees. Joining me in studio is Dr. Jill Grimes, the author of the book "Seductive Delusions: How Everyday people catch STDs." We'll be talking about her book, and about how to talk to your teenager about sex.

If you have any questions about how to approach your son or daughter about sex, or any questions about STD's in general, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

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