Day 14 and Dr. Oz wants us to connect with our relatives in a different type of way then family gatherings, he wants us to interview them. That's right pull up a chair, some paper and a notepad and ask some hard questions, family history. No, we don't want to find out if Lil Suzy is really Uncle Johnny's baby. Well maybe I do but Oz wants you to find out the medical history in your family. Is there diabetes, heart disease, cancer? He says your relatives history will give you hints about what your genes have in store for you. Another great suggestion is the online tool The US Surgeon General offers to compile your notes into a report to print for your doctor. Now that's #HOTNESS! And remember it's never to early to do this. In your 20s, 30s, 40s (Oh dear God) is better than discovering that over active thyroid is a family trait when you are 89! Well that's exaggerating but you get my point.
Share your information too with other relatives so they can get their health in check and make it a family affair.
