Common Children's Health Old Wives' Tales with Dr. J.J. Levenstein
Old wives tales are passed down from generation to generation. Board certified pediatrician Dr. JJ Levenstein, MD, FAAP explains why some hold very little scientific truth. Will you catch a cold if you go outside with wet hair? What really causes cavities? Does butter do more harm than good when rubbed on a burn? Does chilly or moist weather cause sickness? Is there truth to the fabled "five second rule"? Is dairy okay to consume while sick? And, the great debate between butter versus margarine. Dr. Levenstein answers all these questions and also shares tips for raising a multi-lingual child.
Actress Jane Seymour is out with a new book, "The Wave: Inspiration for Navigating Life's Changes and Challenges," in which she eloquently illustrates an analogy between crashing ocean waves and overcoming life's challenges. She also tells us why an injury is to thank for hanging up her ballet slippers to pursue a fulfilling career in acting instead. Then, the family members share very personal "wave" stories of their own.
Jane's book, "The Wave: Inspiration for Navigating Life's Changes and Challenges" is available at Kay Jewelers and benefits St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. If you are experiencing a wave in your life, write us on Facebook.com/homeandfamilyshow to tell us about it.
