Encore Episode: Lies My Doctor Told Me: Medical Myths That Can Harm Your Health

Does your doctor still recommend that you avoid foods that raise your cholesterol and instead eat a lot of whole grains? Or, maybe your physician has told you to exercise more so you'll lose some weight -- and drink skim milk because it's "less fattening."

Dr. Ken Berry joins Dr. Friedman in this episode from September 2019 to explain why your doc is wrong about these common medical myths and many more. He also shares insights from his book, Lies My Doctor Told Me Second Edition: Medical Myths That Can Harm Your Health.
