Medical Myths and Outright Lies Told to Patients by Their Doctors, Part 1
June 11, 2019
In "Lies My Doctor Told Me," Dr. Ken Berry demolishes common health misconceptions. For over 10 years, while caring for more than 20,000 patients, Dr. Berry has been researching the medical myths and outright lies told to patients by their doctors. They range from unsubstantiated assumptions about cholesterol, saturated fat and salt, to rigid adherence to restrictive guidelines about hormone replacement and thyroid support. Dr. Ken Berry is a stalwart defender of the Paleo-Carnivore diet approach, and dismisses claims by vegan activists. Why is fake health news so prevalent? What can patients do to hold health professionals more accountable? Click HERE for part 2.

“Am I Dying?!” Part 1
June 4, 2019
"Am I Dying?! (Should You Chill Out or Freak Out?)." We interview Christopher Kelly, MD, co-author of this great practical guide to common complaints (Wish I’d thought of that catchy title!). In this age of information overload, fostered by the Internet, “cyberchondria” is stoked by dire on-line recitations of possible outcomes of common complaints: “Is that new mole melanoma?” “Why can’t the doctors figure out why I’m suddenly losing weight?” “Is my forgetfulness a portent of Alzheimer’s?” “Do my swollen ankles mean I’m headed for heart failure?” “Why am I breathless while on a ski vacation?” “Will my slight hand tremor morph into full-blown Parkinson’s Disease?” Dr. Kelly attempts to strike a common-sense balance between appropriate vigilance and gentle reassurance. As a recent graduate of a demanding medical fellowship, he also addresses the epidemic of physician burnout. Click HERE for part 2.
