Healthcare triage: Turkey Doesn’t Make You Sleepy

Healthcare Triage #4 is up. What’s Healthcare Triage? Glad you asked:

Healthcare Triage is a series about healthcare. Dr. Aaron Carroll will explain healthcare policy, medical research, and answer a lot of other questions you may have about medicine, health, and healthcare. Not only that, the videos are going to be pretty fun. John Green will stop in regularly to have his hypochondria soothed by Aaron’s clear and engaging explanations. Healthcare Triage is made by the people who make Crash Course, mental_floss video, and The Art Assignment.

This one is about the myth that turkey makes you sleepy. It’s a thanksgiving special:

While Thanksgiving is a time focused mainly on family, friends, and giving thanks, it’s also the cause of a pervasive medical myth: that turkey makes you sleepy. Don’t start with us about the tryptophan. Gah! We know about the tryptophan, and you’re not helping your case.

It’s your Thanksgiving duty to watch this video and share it with everyone you know. Help us beat down this lie! You owe it to the turkeys.

Please watch and share! We need support in terms of subscribers and viewers to keep this going!
