Should you be worried about your children eating hot chips?
The Doctors discuss the case of a woman who claimed in an online post that two different hospitals misdiagnosed her daughter's salivary gland stones. The woman claimed after two misdiagnoses a different doctor said eating hot chips caused the salivary gland stones.
The Doctors question if linking the hot chips to the salivary gland stones is accurate, and go on to explain that if someone does have a salivary stone that usually the production of saliva can free the stone.
The Doctors' takeaway - do not overdue it with spicy foods if they do not agree with you.
