James Chodosh, MD, MPH, joins Dr. Roizen to discuss the shingles virus, why it can be dangerous when manifesting in the eye, and how you can prevent it.Shingles is caused by the varicella-zoster virus, which first enters the body as chickenpox and never leaves.

It often appears as an angry red rash on the torso, but about 20 percent of cases show up in the eye area on one side of the face -- typically with redness on and around the eyelid, and sometimes on the forehead and scalp. According to research, these cases of shingles on the eye are on the rise.

There’s a dark side of the wine industry.The health benefits of wine seem to be endless. Research shows wine helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, lowers cholesterol, reduces the risk of cancer and may even extend your lifespan. Having a glass or two of wine each day has even been recommended by the American Heart Association. But, unfortunately, there’s a dark side of the industry. Thanks to a lack of regulation on labeling, most wine sold in the U.S contains massive amounts of hidden colorants, pesticide residue, toxins and excessive sugar. To say these additives are unhealthy is an understatement. A recent analysis found 100% of all wines tested in California contained high levels of glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, the cancer causing herbicide produced by Monsanto. Todd White, founder of Dry Farm Wines, joins Dr. Friedman to share the dirty truth about wine, from irrigation to fermentation. He’ll also discuss how you can choose healthy, organic wine so you get all the wonderful health benefits without any hidden chemical additives.
