I Have a Problem with UnTuckit Shirts

Season 1, Ep. 12

Obesity is the #1 public health concern we face in America. With 75% of adults overweight or obese, this is no small problem. This damaging obesity is the belly fat around the mid-section, which triggers inflammation and tissue damage throughout the body, including the heart and liver.


The untucked shirt movement, which doesn't even look that good from a fashion standpoint, is a cover-up for the expanding girths we are facing. Instead of realizing your clothes are getting tight (due to obesity), and plan to cut down what you're eating and exercise more, the only change is to get clothes that are designed to cover the problem-your gut.


We cannot simply hide the expanding waistline with a cleverly tailored shirt. Resist the untucked movement. Push away from the table, exercise more, and visit your healthcare team. It's that important.

Ed Henry Donates His Liver

Season 1, Ep. 8

What a story! Ed Henry from Fox News donated about 30% of his liver to his sister that was in need of a liver transplant as a result of end-stage liver disease. Through a series of amazing twists, I was was asked to appear on Fox and Friends last week to help explain live liver donation, organ transplant, and the overall liver transplant process to the Fox and Friends audience. During this broadcast, Ed Henry announced his decision to donate, in a very emotional segment. For most that saw this genuine outpouring of emotion from Ed, they were very much unfamiliar with organ donation and transplant, let alone a partial liver donation and transplant, and the eventual regeneration of both the donor's liver (i.e. Ed) and his sister who received the transplant (i.e. 30% to 100% in a matter of weeks after transplant).


While we all enjoy these type of human interest stories on TV or the web, this story has struck a chord with America, seeing both the raw emotion displayed, but also the amazing good that organ donation and transplant achieves. Being a small part of this story has been an amazing experience for me, and one I can only hope continues to foster discussion, understanding, awareness, and hope for those thousands of people that are awaiting a transplant.


Check out a video highlight of the story.
