Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen discuss their new book for teens on ‘GMA’

You: The Owner's Manual for Teens book by Dr. Michael F. Roizen and Dr. Memhet Oz

(Best Syndication News) - Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen have written a new book called, “You: The Owner’s Manual for Teens” and shared a few tips on ABC’s ‘GMA’ TV show today. The two doctors offered a few tips to improve the health of teens.

In the first part of the segment, Doctor Oz went to a school to answer questions for teens. Doctor Oz had his sixteen-year old daughter with him. The first question was about hair loss in teen years. Dr. Oz said there is medicine that can slow down the process. Another teen asked about dark circles even though she has plenty sleep and eats healthy. Dr. Oz said that is a sign of allergies and she should change her pillow to either a Hypoallergenic one or put a casing on the pillow. Doctor Oz surveyed the class about how much sleep they were getting at night. Almost half the kids in the class did not get at least 7 hours of sleep.

Doctor Oz said in the GMA interview that teens are not mature until the early twenties and accidents and bad decisions are the leading cause of death for teens.

He said that teens need 9 hours of sleep and they should have omega 3 fatty acids in their diet because it makes the brain smarter.

Dr. Roizen said that in the country Papua New Guinea the teens do not have pimples possibly because they do not eat extra amounts saturated fats and sugar. He suggests that eating less sugar and saturated fat might be able to help prevent pimples from happening. Additionally, he said to avoid using lotions and treatments that have fragrance and colors because they could cause an allergic reaction, which could make the acne worse. Instead, use an Aloe moisturizer after using a neutral soap to clean the face. Dr. Oz demonstrated how to lance a pimple instead of popping a pimple with the fingers. He said to have a parent help and never to squeeze on it.


Dr. Roizen explained that body odor comes from genes (genetics) and food. How food metabolizes could cause body odor. Roizen suggested eating a probiotic to help digestion. If sweating is still a problem, Roizen said that there are prescription antiperspirants available. He explained that you put them on at night, wash them off in the morning, and do this around three times a week.

Dr. Oz said that dandruff is fungi that got under the scalp. He offered a home remedy of using brewed green tea that is cooled it down and then placed in the hair to kill the fungi. Of course, medicated shampoo works too.

The two doctors said that bad breath could be fixed by thoroughly cleaning the mouth. First, brush the teeth, and then gargle with mouthwash. Last step is to use a tongue scraper explained the doctors.

Tonight at http://www.doctoroz.com/ there will be a special question and answer event for teens and their parents. The live event is June 7, 2011 at 4 pm Pacific Time.
