Expensive Child’s Play:  Pedialyte for Hangovers?

Expensive Child’s Play: Pedialyte for Hangovers?

Pedialyte, the kids’ rehydration drink, is being swallowed up by adults. The urban myth is that it revives and restores you post work-out and, much more importantly, helps cure hangovers. In fact even Miley Cyrus has been spotted drinking Pedialyte instead of plain water, further fueling the thirst for this relatively expensive drink.  The question is, do adults benefit from drinking it? So, what,... »

Take A Seat

Take A Seat

Let me ask you something personal – what’s your relationship like with your toilet seat?   Is there some mutual respect?  Or is it more of a one way relationship?   What about a public toilet?  That’s generally an entirely other type of relationship and one that we don’t want lasting any longer than it absolutely has to. Our relationship with toilet seats goes way beyond the simple “lid up or down... »

Belly Up to the Bar

Belly Up to the Bar

Is beer really “liquid bread” and more fattening than other forms of alcohol?  There have been many rumors brewing for a while now.  The truth is beer is made from fermented grains and yes, contains carbohydrates.  The Egyptians ate a type of fermented porridge that was the precursor to beer.  And thank goodness we’ve evolved it into a beverage.  Can you imagine meeting your friends after work for... »

Underwear under there?

Underwear under there?

The option of NOT wearing underwear has been around since the 60s.  And, I don’t mean the 1960s when the baby boomers think they invented sex.  I mean the 1860s.  Generally speaking, what we today call “underwear” wasn’t widely worn until the 1800s.  And, believe it or not, MEN started wearing underwear more regularly than women. So, is “going commando” ok?  It’s probably better than if you don’t ... »

DCoC After Dark Podcast: Why Lena Dunham is not a sex predator

DCoC After Dark Podcast: Why Lena Dunham is not a sex predator

What is your diagnosis? This is the question that drives all doctors because diagnosis is what it’s all about in medicine. Getting it wrong means disaster. Getting it right is tough. In Ireland twenty years ago I diagnosed a child as a victim of parental sex abuse. Come on a brief journey with me and I’ll tell you what I got wrong and what I got right. It’s a sobering story and t... »

This Is Not Your Dad’s Talk About Condoms

This Is Not Your Dad’s Talk About Condoms

Do condoms work? Yes, they do. Most emphatically: they do. They work better at preventing STIs (sexually transmitted diseases) than as a contraceptive but, when used properly, they work almost 98% of the time to prevent pregnancy. But when you use them out in the field, not so much. That’s why, for purely contraceptive purposes, I recommend the IUD or long acting injectable hormones over condoms. ... »

After Dark Podcast: Is Your Vagina Happy?

After Dark Podcast: Is Your Vagina Happy?

The vagina is the “forbidden zone” as the famed playwright Eve Ensler describes it. In this podcast I explain the anatomy of the forbidden zone, the everyday problems women encounter and how even in the medical world the “fear” of the forbidden zone has led and leads to idiotic treatments and taboos. All of which is illustrated with stories from twenty years of clinical pra... »
