Jettison Medicine show

Mar 22, 2016

It seems every year our political parties ignore the power of the bumper sticker and elect candidates such as Mitch and Trump, whose names rhyme with synonyms of the word discard. We have seen the “Ditch Mitch” and “Dump Trump” movements. Heck, MSPR even has a “Chuck Mraz” movement. In honor of sinus pain awareness month, the $250 “Genius” toothbrush, Mitt Romney and smart phone apps that don’t record your blood pressure properly, we dedicate this show.


Tip: According to the American Academy of Otolaryngology, a clinician should diagnose a bacterial sinus infection when symptoms fail to improve within 10 days or they improve initially and then worsen within 10 days. Unless you are extremely ill, take your time before getting antibiotics for your sinuses.
