Turn That Frown Upside Down

K-9 Stem Cell Therapy
Red, a 12-year-old Labrador Retriever, is a retired rescue dog that assisted at the Pentagon after the 9/11 attacks. After years of rescue work and a fall from a 12-foot ladder, Red has since developed severe arthritis in her spine, which caused chronic pain and hindered her mobility.

Dr. Ordon’s Knee Surgery
Dr. Ordon recently injured his knee and paid a visit to his college friend orthopedic surgeon Dr. Louis Rose, to determine if he can heal with rehabilitation or if surgery is necessary.
Male Body Odor vs. Female Body Odor
A viewer asks:
Why is bad body odor so much more of an issue for men than women?
“It’s not so much that men inherently smell worse than women, it’s that we don’t clean ourselves very well [compared to women]," E.R. physician Dr. Travis Stork says.
Perspiration is practically odorless, but can cause unpleasant smells when it comes in contact with bacteria on your skin. Perspiration that’s triggered by emotion is more likely to appear on your face, in your armpits, on your palms and the soles of your feet.
For normal sweating and body odor, lifestyle and home treatments can effectively manage your symptoms. In some cases, a prescription antiperspirant or deodorant may be needed. However, if you suddenly begin to sweat much more or less than usual, notice it disrupting your daily routine, experience unexplained night sweats or notice a change in odor, it can signal certain medical conditions such as diabetic ketoacidosis or kidney failure. If you or someone you know is experiencing these symptoms, be sure to consult your doctor.
