Sunscreen, swimsuits, football head injuries (concussions/CTE), dogs and babies… the doctors on Reddit have strong takes on all of these things and so much more. I decided to look at a thread about practices medical professionals have started based upon things they’ve learned from their patients. Some of the advice is good, such as having an up-to-date will and the benefits of quitting smoking. Other things, such as making sure you pee before you get inside ANY car… are a little too much for me. At the end I also share 3 ways I’ve changed my life based on my interactions with patients, including thoughts on skin cancer and coffee and alcohol consumption. Let me know down below if you think any of these will change the way you go about your daily life!
Check out the rest of the thread here:

  • I started smoking when I was 12 and made the switch to vaping when I was 17 (and I’ve splurged with cigarettes every once in a while). I’ve been vaping for over 3 years now, and when I tried to use the patch I was also vaping. It’s hard to stop, I keep making the excuse that I’ll stop vaping when I want a baby, hopefully I follow through. If you have started smoking it’s a friggin struggle. If you haven’t smoked plz don’t do it cause it’s a b!*ch and a half to stop.

  • Have you had over 5 sunburns? Wait wait wait..... you are telling me that there are people who /have/ had a sunburn... but less than 5? Like I get that some people don't burn easily but if you can burn.... how do you not burn all the time? I've been sunburnt on overcast days O__O (Yes now I am very careful. 4 skin cancers in my family... I'm not longer playing with that).

  • My two-year-old son was bitten in the face by my grandmother's dog(a Welsh Corgi) I was sitting right next to them and hate to think what would have happened if I didn't grab him immediately. Thankfully he did not need stitches and he only has a tiny scar in the outside corner of his nostril. He had been playing with the dog all day long and the dog had never shown any aggression towards him whatsoever. It literally came out of nowhere. So, I can definitely attest to keeping littles away from dogs, or at the very least being extremely cautious.

  • parents can be very irresponsible around pets. an adult wouldn't yank on a dogs ears or tales . when a child does, why are they surprised the child gets bitten. unfortunately, the dog ends up being given away. not the dogs fault, parents fault. rugby players don't wear helmets and don't have concussions on the level of football. They are not allowed to hit that high up in the body, I think the rules of tackling should be changed

  • Dr. Mike, can you respond to anti-vaccine videos by UZworldr Paul Thomas MD. He’s a pediatrician who I tuned into to learn more about common childhood ailments and was greatly disappointed by his approach to vaccines. He’s “vaccine friendly” meaning friendly to delaying or skipping, and has written a book about his vaccine views. You’ve made some amazing vaccine videos and everyone should be primed to receive the COVID-19 vaccine next year. He’s said kids in schools shouldn’t have to wear masks and that masks don’t do much anyway. It’s doctors like him who worry me.

  • My dad died when I was 4, me and my mum have always talked very openly what we would want in various situations and usually without becoming emotional, but at the start of the pandemic we decided to have a more serious one discussing some of the things specific to covid like if we would want trial medications used etc, that was harder and we both cried. It felt far more imminent than it ever had before and that was a tough one, but we already knew the normal stuff like organ donation, life support, funeral types, it was the specific things covid related we hadn't considered

  • Belgian Health Experts Call for WHO Investigation into Fake Coronavirus Pandemic A German doctor sues the German government for crimes against humanity and invites all countries to do the same. Dr. and lawyer Reiner Füllmich has filed a criminal lawsuit against the German government and the director of the WHO, Tedros Adhanom, for crimes against humanity. Füllmich explains how, by whom and how this health scam against humanity has been orchestrated using the tool of the RCPs, with the collusion of governments, the pharmaceutical industry, the technology industry and the media. Reiner Füllmich 1. By prior agreement with governments, by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the WHO, the purchase of PCRs as a testing tool for an identified virus. 2. Declaring a seasonal flu pandemic, leaving elderly people to die in nursing homes due to neglect and mistreatment of patients, while prohibiting autopsies so as not to reveal the true cause of the disease. 3. Inoculating fear in the population by imposing measures that restrict and eliminate all rights and freedoms, as well as sanctions and arrests. 4. Spreading panic, especially among children, making them feel responsible for the death of their parents and grandparents, if they do not comply with the measures imposed by the coronavirus. 5. Making the population believe that a tool such as PCR serves to identify an infectious and contagious disease, not being true, because it does not provide such information, in order to confine the citizens. 6. Harming the health and economy of millions of people, for the billionaire benefit of corporations. With all the demonstrable facts, by scientific professionals, virologists, microbiologists, doctors, jurists...explain how they are going to sue those responsible for crimes against humanity, and how those affected (companies and individuals) can sue those responsible for this orchestrated scam, in each country, for damages suffered, as a result of the measures imposed, in economic or health damages. To this end, at the end of the video, he offers to provide free advice, resources and information to legal professionals in other countries.

"Why a glass of wine with dinner? It goes with the food." Vs the "it's always wine'o clock" of all the functional mom alcoholics.

  • Highly doubt you'll get to read this message but I have a string of health conditions including 5 mental health, fibromyalgia, bursitis in both shoulders, FAI in my left hip. I've had fibro for just over a year and several months now, but more often than not I miss work because of pain or flare ups. My question is this, refering to the last bit of your video, movement is quite obviously a good "cure all" activity and I know this especially because of all the pain and stiffness from fibro, what what do you do when you're in too much pain to move, yes not moving causes more pain due to stiffness? This is something I'm still trying to learn. Ps. This is my second time posting in your videos... I've fallen in love with your content! Keep up the great work!

  • Could you make a full video on avoiding a sedentary lifestyle? I know the solution seems obvious but for someone like me who has been fully sedentary for years, it genuinely seems overwhelming and difficult to break out of. Like, multiple walks, a day?! How long do they need to be? What does being sedentary mean? How do I know if I'm sedentary? How do I know when I'm not sedentary anymore? It could be really helpful for me and, based on the comments, a lot of your subscribers. I know how to exercise and I try to exercise multiple times a week. However, in between that, I find myself sitting for hours and hours without moving.
