Monday, July 26th on The Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius 114 and XM 119: Doctor Radio!

I am writing this in the beautiful state of Maine, where I am visiting my children at camp. If you think I'm far away from NYU, wait till you hear where our first guest is from.

The origins of Celiac Disease are quite a mystery, as is its increase in the population worldwide. Dr. Robert Anderson, of The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research in Victoria, Australia will be joining us on the line to talk about his research showing that just fragments of gluten triggers the celiac disease response. This research could lead to an actual cure for celiac disease, rather than our current effective, but miserable, treatment of avoiding all gluten containing products.

If you have any questions about celiac disease give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

As I write this, I am enjoying my morning cup of coffee. I will admit that its hard for me to miss it. But is it good for you? Dr. Peter Martin, of the Vanderbilt University Institute for Coffee Studies will be coming on to talk about new research showing that coffee may reduce the risk for prostate cancer. He will be also talking about his institute's research, and answering your coffee questions!

Wondering if you should give up that cup a day...or add it back? Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS

I was going to say that our theme today revolved around food, but its clear that our third guest makes that impossible. Louis Sorkin, entomologist at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, will be joining us to talk about all things bug: bedbugs in particular.

If you have a questions about bedbugs or other household problems, give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

We will end the show, as always, with Ask Dr. Ira, where you can ask me a question about any medical topic at all and I will be happy to answer you. Anything you forgot to ask your doctor, ask me!
