Doctor Reacts To Absurd Facebook Health Posts Ep. 2

Last summer I reacted to some bizarre health posts I’d found on Facebook. I logged back in to see if I could fact-check any more posts that seemed to be spreading like wildfire. Well wouldn’t you know it didn’t take me long to find some dangerously misleading or downright ridiculous health “tips”. I had to fact check things like using onions to cure the cold, baking soda to remove grease from your hair, drinking cow’s urine to fight COVID-19, putting cabbage in your bra to battle mastitis, using toothpaste as a skin cream, and the proper way to hold your phone, drive, and wear your backpack to school.

I LOVE reading your comments and take your suggestions seriously. If there’s a subject you want me to discuss or something you’d like for me to react to, leave a comment down below. Many of my videos have been born out of suggestions directly from you, so don’t hold back!

    Is it healthy to drink cow urine? The urine of a pregnant cow is also considered healthy as it is claimed to have special hormones and minerals. Ayurveda recommends drinking cow urine every morning on an empty stomach for curing different kinds of health ailments including diabetes, tumours, tuberculosis, stomach problems, and even cancer. I copy pasted this from google. I cant beleave this.

    Speaking of bronchitis, I AM A DEMON! One day a person in my class that I absolutely despise, told everybody but me she had bronchitis and I over heard her. On the bus, someone asked, " why do you have that drink?" And she said," I need it so I don't die". And in my mind I say," ok just lemme take that drink away from you then.😈" But I knew she was going to get Angry and then tell on me. But a couple months ago she was expelled from school for one, spraying pepper spray on the classroom carpet, two, for threating to kill herself with a glass breaker bc she went to the office twice, three, Slapping someone in the face, and four, THREATENING TO KICK MY TEETH OUT! GOD IM HAPPY SHES OUTTA MY LIFE. Half of this was off topic but you probably get the point.

    Actually, for people who are ill or others, who can't take a bath or shower to wash their hair I believe baking soda works as a good hack. I think there are dry shampoos you could use also for this same reason.

    To be fair, when you have dreadlocks you can't wash your hair very often (and regular shampoo will make them unravel), so baking soda or dry shampoo is better than nothing.
