When it comes to medical advice, a doctor is supposed to know what is truth and what is myth. However, an amazing number of doctors are misinformed. This episode begins with some information about a survey that showed how many pediatricians believe some common parenting advice that has been proven to be untrue. Source: Baby Facts by Andrew Adesman, M.D. (https://amzn.to/3h0oPLw) Digital communication makes it easy to keep in touch with people but there are also pitfalls. Emails, texts, chats and other electronic messages can be misinterpreted in a lot of different ways. Erica Dhawan is a speaker and trainer who is author of a book called Digital Body Language (https://amzn.to/3nIkKNc). Listen as she explores how to best use digital communication and avoid the missteps that so often happen that can lead to misunderstanding and trouble.  The food we eat today has evolved from the days when we were hunter-gatherers. Today most of the food we eat is farmed and farming changed everything. And certainly, cooking food also changed everything. Even herbs and spices changed the way we prepare and eat our food. Jonathan Silvertown professor of evolutionary ecology at the University of Edinburgh and author of the book Dinner with Darwin: Food, Drink, and Evolution (https://amzn.to/3xHpfMx) joins me for a fascinating discussion about how our food has changed over time and what it has done to help humans evolve.  Do you know how often you are supposed to replace things like toothbrushes, pillows or kitchen sponges? Listen as I explain some expert advice on when to throw the old one out and bring a new one in. And some of the recommendations may surprise you. https://www.theactivetimes.com/change-toothbrush-kitchen-sponge PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!

If you don’t wear decent sunglasses outside, you are asking for trouble. Just ask any eye doctor. Ultraviolet light is bad for your eyes - and sunglasses can stop it - if you get the right kind of sunglasses. This episode begins with a description of what to look for in a good pair of sunglasses. https://www.aao.org/eye-health/news/how-to-choose-best-sunglasses It certainly seems like you are the same person you were 1, 2 or 10 years - but you are so very different. In fact, you are not the person you think you are. Different things affect how you act and what you think. That’s according to David Eagleman a neuroscientist who teaches at Stanford and is author of the book Livewired (https://amzn.to/2PH6eIX). Listen as he explains all the things that make you who you are and how those things continually change who you are.  While we are all concerned about what food we eat, it seems we are less concerned about the beverages we drink. Yet, drinks can have a big impact on health and well-being. The sugar in soda and juice, the alcohol in cocktails or the caffeine in coffee - they all impact your life. Alexis Willett, author of the book Drinkology: The Science of What We Drink and What It Does to Us, from Milks to Martinis (https://amzn.to/3gPZ7ck) has researched the common beverages we consume and what the science says about just how good - or bad they are. And she joins me to discuss some fascinating findings you really need to hear. How much you spend in a restaurant can depend in part on the menu. Menus are often engineered to encourage you to spend more. Listen as I explain some of the things to watch out for. https://www.pmq.com/menus-that-sell/ PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!

Everyone is different but when I need to solve a problem or think of something creative, I often lie down, close my eyes and think. And it turns out that is good advice for everyone. I start this episode with some interesting research that reveals why lying down is a good position to think in. https://lifehacker.com/need-a-creative-boost-try-lying-down-5982463 Ever have your heart broken? I think we all have at some point. Psychologist Guy Winch, author of the book How to Fix a Broken Heart (https://amzn.to/2UD20it) joins me to explain why a broken heart feels so horrible, how it is different than other forms of grief and why we need to take it more seriously. A broken heart can have negative long-lasting effects and Guy explains how to minimize those effects so you can move on with your life. What if there was no zero? In the world of numbers, zero is a relatively new addition. And it is the only number that hasn’t changed over time. It is and always has been a circle. Alex Bellos, author of the book Alex’s Adventures in Numberland (https://amzn.to/2MT3G4V) explains some of the fascination facts about numbers like: Why a minute has 60 seconds and an hour has 60 minutes; why a number for nothing (zero) was so revolutionary; why elevator buttons never use negative numbers to indicate floors below ground – and so much more. (Alex is also author of Puzzle Ninja and Soccer School . How can it be that 40% of food in the United States is wasted and thrown away? Many people use coupons and search for bargains at the supermarket and yet so much of that food never gets eaten. Listen as we explore the problem and what we can do. https://www.agweek.com/lifestyle/3937264-save-money-fish-heads-and-potato-scraps PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!

This episode begins by explaining the negative impact of too much noise so you can protect yourself. https://www.sehn.org/sehn/noise-pollution-takes-toll-on-health-and-happiness-everyday-noise-can-overstimulate-the-bodys-stress-response What is the best way to achieve any goal? There are a lot of theories and ideas but there is also solid research about this. If you want to know what the research says is the best way to accomplish those big goals, listen to Katy Milkman.

She has some surprisingly simple yet powerful ways to help you accomplish anything.  What is life? Yes, it is a big question but my guest is the perfect person to tackle it. Listen to Sir Paul Nurse who won a Nobel prize in 2001 for his work in science and author of the book What Is Life?: Five Great Ideas in Biology (https://amzn.to/3dVHxC5). He explains what makes something “living” and has some fascinating insights into what life is all about and why some things are still a mystery. Ever have a bee that just won’t leave you alone? It could be that the bee thinks you are a flower. Listen as I explain how to make sure every bee is aware you are not a flower and how to stop them from following you around this summer. http://insects.about.com/od/antsbeeswasps/a/10-tips-to-avoid-bee-stings.htm PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!
