DCoC Video: Me Granny’s Steak, Butter, and Eggs vs. Harvard University’s Low-Fat Diet

Back in the day, when I was a young whipper snapper in Dublin, I burst into “me” granny’s apartment with the news–she was killing us.

Being Forgetful About Feeling Regretful

Being Forgetful About Feeling Regretful

How regretful are you?  Yes, that’s, regretful not forgetful!  Most of us go through the day and don’t ponder our regrets much beyond, “why did I eat fries when there was a side salad?” Others, and interestingly enough, more women than men, are consumed by so called “repetitive regrets.”  These mega-regret, mental overloads –  constantly going over and over situations and outcomes in your mind and... »

What is COPD?

Smoking Lives

Smoking Lives

One of the things you learn in medical school is when you ask someone “Do you smoke?” and they say “No,” you always follow up with: “Did you ever smoke?”  The answer can be surprising, as in, “I quit yesterday.”  And they quit yesterday because they couldn’t catch their breath either due to a pneumonia or bronchitis. I always joke that patients get no brownie points for not smoking when they can’t... »

Boys Don’t Cry – But Men Do

Boys Don’t Cry – But Men Do

What’s crying all about? I use to ask myself that a lot growing up. You see I grew up with four sisters and they occasionally cried. Always, I hasten to add, under perfectly understandable situations. And I never saw their crying as a sign of weakness, far from it, it was an emotional release that really seemed to help them. Of course it was an emotional release that men, real mean, just didn’t ne... »

“Sherlock Holmes” Will Diagnose You Now

“Sherlock Holmes” Will Diagnose You Now

The intense, questioning, never giving up way Sherlock Holmes goes after the bad guy is the same way we doctors go after your diagnosis. And the reasoning is simple. The diagnosis is what it’s all about in the medical world. Even though it’s simply a label, it decides everything. It places you and your symptoms into a group that doctors have seen before. It allows doctors, based on what‘s happened... »
