Did anyone see Oprah Friday?

Doctor was on the show saying how we should change our ways. They showed an autopsy on a man to show how fat looks in the body - not a pretty picture but it was fascinating and now I know what's around my heart and belly. Oh dear. They also showed a smoker's lung compared to a regular one, gallstones, a fibroid tumor, 2 arteries one healthy and one not (the doctor had to hunt for a month for a healthy one because everyone usually has plaque in theirs). It was a fascinating show and hopefully I can record the rerun and keep that fat in mind when the chocolate monster calls me...Kathy

Hi Kathy,
No, I didn't see it, but recently watched a show where a lady had her stomach stapled and they showed those big globs of yellowish fat!! Hasn't left my mind. What an eye opener.

RE: Did anyone see Oprah Friday?

There is a new quit smoking commercial in the UK being aired. It shows surgically gloved hands handling a rubber tube (mimicking an artery)- they are squeezing out gooey fat - yellowish looking and like chuncky lard - really disgusting. Makes ya think.

I will keep an eye out for the oprah rerun when it is shown here.

Very interesting indeed!

Kathy, My daughter was home from work and happened to see that program.....gross but interesting and informative.

I've been told that the fat of a human looks just like chicken fat.......not a pretty sight when there's an abundance.

RE: Did anyone see Oprah Friday?

Yes it was globs of yellowish fat - oh my. Shame no one saw the show but I am going to watch for it in the reruns. Kathy

I saw it. Raeanne from SS alerted me and I set the Ti-Vo. I Ti-Vo'd it and my teens are going to watch it with me---they missed the first showing. The smokers lungs were most interesting and the uterine fibroids were an eye opener.

I didn't think it was gross. It was presented in a very factual way. The doc was a great speaker and did a nice job with the video and disection presentations.

I watched it and was also impressed. I thought it was handled very well, and I enjoyed his talk. I made my husband watch it. He showed pictures of what a weight gain can do to you spine, and he talked about so many things we hear about. But at least twice he said that men may worry about a heart attack or stroke, but excessive weight can make them impotent. He said that that fact had more effect than any other statistics. Interesting!
I really enjoyed the show.
