Bacteria on Scarves
Kyla, an audience member, said she brought along a few of her favorite pieces of clothing to The Dr Oz Show. She especially loved her scarf, which was a great fashion statement for any of her outfits. Kyla told Dr Oz she wore her scarf 3-4 a week but didn’t wash it frequently. When asked, most of the audience members admitted that they didn’t wash their scarves very often either. Dr Oz pulled out a device that detected bodily fluids and bacteria. (Uh, oh, this didn’t look good for Kyla!) He scanned Kyla’s scarf with the device and bodily fluid lit up on the bottom of the scarf. (Yuck!) Dr Oz said this could be due to the scarf dragging or being dropped on the floor. Germs live on surface for months and could cause infections. To eliminate the issue, either change or clean the scarf more frequently.
Dr Oz: Highlighter Jean Test
Kyla loved her skinny jeans, but she said they were hard to get into because they were so, well, skinny. Dr Oz says jeans that are too tight may put pressure on the nerves, which could cause tingling. This could even result in the need for surgery. Dr Oz suggested the highlighter jean test. If you can’t place a highlighter marker between the jeans and the waist, they’re too tight.
Do Ballet Flat Shoes Cause Arthritis?
Kyla said she loved her flat shoes because they were so comfortable and better looking than sneak ers. Dr Oz says ballet flats can increase your chance of arthritis because they put pressure on the knees, hips, and back. To eliminate this issue, Dr Oz says to buy flats with a little bit of an arch. You can add heel liners to help feet stick in the shoe so your toes aren’t grasping the shoe when walking.
