    deplatforming all doctors won't change their views an behaviour. I'd rather they posted their views and then got corrected, than act a certain way at work and never change their mind..

    I just read some of the reviews about Thrive online. While they seem generally positive, there are some issues. Some of the comparisons showed higher prices than going to Walmart, and one reviewer made the statement that it's a good option if you don't have a Whole Foods or Trader Joe's near you. That implies those places have better prices. My wife and I had a membership for BJs for two years and probably went all of four times. The only good thing were the tire prices. That actually made it worthwhile. A a matter of fact, we usually get a new membership when we get tires, so like every other year. I think the best way on the wallet to get the best deal isn't to sign up for these things, but to price-shop every grocery store in the area. And to take advantage of trial offers like Pea Pod has for Stop and Shop right now, $30 off your first order of $100, which you can also use to pick up in store so you don't have to wait for delivery. Amazon has a coupon, too for their service. Even if you only do it the one time, you save money if you shop there anyway.

    I really appreciate Dr. Mike’s attention to the issue of casual inference. He’s right, correlation does not equal causation. But ALSO, it should be recognized that the “gold standard” of research- a randomized controlled trial, is NOT possible when your main variable of interest is gender or race. The fact of the matter is that you cannot randomly assign people into a gender or race condition, so the best we can do is make sure that these quasi-experiments use sound methodology otherwise. Remember to always criticize research for what it is, not what it is not.

    the first 10 seconds of this video already had me hooked. I struggle with depression and anxiety and was diagnosed a couple years ago; with that being said when I went to therapy and saw a psychiatrist , it was out of pocket because my insurance would only cover one that was a 125 miles from me. It really disappoints me that she would say that about PCP, Family Practice doctors etc. My PCP always asks me if I'm doing ok, if i need refills on my medicine because my RX isn't covered under my Psychiatrist... SO THANK YOU DOCTOR MIKE FOR BRINGING LIGHT TO THIS!!!!!! THIS IS A SERIOUS ISSUE!

    When is it a good time to get a second opinion from a doctor? I've already had to go through a colonoscopy and now they want me to do another one because they didn't do a biopsy last time. I've also done a bunch of labs and a CT scan and they can't figure out what's wrong with me. Is it worth it to try a different doctor at this point?

My girlfriend started studying for a post graduate degree in the USA and keeps telling me that "Greek food" in the US is nothing like we have in Greece.

    Hi Dr Mike. I was thinking of taking the water fast diet where you only drink water instead of eating for 10 days. I’ve seen a few videos on this, but I was wondering whether it is safe to try just once because there is inconclusive evidence on its benefits. I was thinking of doing it in the summer holidays when I’m not in college and I’m just staying at home. Thank u 😁
