After having spent a goodly amount of time in hospital corridors and waiting rooms , I noticed conversations often revolved around diseases and the various medical procedures to treat them. Because of TV shows such as The Doctors and Doctor Oz we have become fluent in terminology that was formerly only the domain of medical experts.
One day a few of us were chatting about fluid intakes. My friend Don (not his real name) quoted Dr Oz as having pooh-poohed previous medical opinion in regards to their effect on lung congestion. Milk was no longer considered a determent for those recovering from respiratory problems.
I must have appeared a bit dubious because my friend added. “Dr Oz is right. He MUST
be right… after all his father was a wizard!”
