TV not always a healthy channel for advice
Your family doctor doesn't work with a teleprompter. And there wasn't a live studio audience the last time you put on a hospital gown — thankfully. Television is great for sports, reality shows and reruns of "The Big Bang Theory," but if you're getting your health information from TV, you might not be as well-informed — or as healthy — as you could be.
