For this week Doctor Mel Practice and Nurse Epipen were joined by a familiar face. Professor Steven Ellen (who you might know as Doctor Do-Little), was joined by his co-author Catherine Deveny to discuss his recently launched book 'Mental: Everything You Never Knew You Needed to Know About Mental Health. The team was also joined by Professor Peter Brukner to discuss another book. Prof. Brukner's book 'Fat Load Of Good' dives into nutrition and the importance of healthy fats and triglycerides in your diet. In doctorly news, the team also discussed the neuro-science behind neckties and how they cause "socially acceptable strangulation" and are a bed for carrying disease.
