Male: I only know the advertisers on tv, they say they work and you buy one day you think its going to help and you try it. Doctor: Okay, but you know, even though great states say any of them work, how the hell it let him worry. Look at the value of version. Did not say any of them work. And now were concern about children I see pediatrician. It is the kids on it too. Cancel it, thank god. I used to tell you I had a little kids that does cold syrup and the market is cold a little bit of a vaporizer, a little salt water nose drops, a kiss in the forehead and leave me alone. Is that true? Male: Yes yes. Doctor: Okay, and cause I said there is no side effect to any drug you do not use, and just concern. If sometime you got crazy things, you take advil, emotrin, Tylenol and mix it with a decongestant, which could raise your heart rate. And sometime, it could raise your temperature. Base on metabolic rate, he took something to lower their temperature to something they can raise that makes sense. Male: No, not at all.

Male: Yes. Doctor: But you thought they were safe? Male: Yes I did. Doctor: The American camby came one out and felt you so month to six. Now I’m gonna ask you a question. You heard that there are some stuff at zinc of the chart, he has cold, he can take zinc, guess what, have the half-later.

Male: Look, this type of information happens all the time. There are certain times you have to alcohol is good for your heart. Then at certain times, alcohol is bad for your heart. Something else is good for you, something, then a few months later these report that something has been killed. These is as simple, it goes on all the time. Doctor: If you are a consumer and you had a cold, you should realize that you taken a cough syrup or a cold remedy. It’s not going to loose shorten for cold. It’s not going to make a go away. If you have a running nose and you want some relief, you do not argue. If you’re coughing a little bit, is it honey? But we cannot use it on the old chunkers some concern but on older kids and adults. Honey, recent studies stated that is more effective than you have been using also. So, how do you cough up something onetime. Chicken soup we know, talk to any Jewish with Italian grandmother. A little chicken soup up and guess what, they did a study I think in Miami, it triump a little bit. So, that is okay, but the best way of preventing cold spreading. Anything is washing your hands, alcohol cleanses that great I thing. Male: And use separate towels in your house. Doctor: And they think, don’t use toothbrush 201, get rid of that thing cause you’re blocking in the gum then spreads it. So, common sense. If you want a cold and cough and you want to waste you money, were not against you using it, ___ and ____.
