    The Discovery Health Channel is running a series this week on "The
    Truth About Food" with Oprah's favorite doctor, Dr. Oz.

    This series is also being featured on today's Oprah show.

    Program descriptions:

    "Dr. Oz shows the inside of his body" Dr. Oz swallows a pill camera to
    show the inside of his body and discusses how to eat more and still
    lose weight.

    I'm not a big fan of daytime tv, but when Doctor Oz is scheduled, you've got to Tivo this show!

    I'll watch on Oprah because I just did the pillcam thing myself last Thursday.

    If you miss this show, it will probably re-air several times...

    And you can check the CNN transcripts after the show airs.

    I think Dr. Oz is scheduled for Monday's Oprah show, but as I type this that isn't showing up on Tivo listings or www.Oprah.com

    Pretty interesting. The pillcam has a light, camera and transmitter and takes pictures every 2 seconds while transiting your system - amazing.
    The pill was bigger than expected - took me 3 tries to get it down.

    Multiple leads are affixed to your skin and attached to a small computer about the size of a portable heart monitor that you have to wear for the day. I laughed and decided to stay at home for the day when i saw the setup because between the harness and the computer's multicolored blinking lights you look like a suicide bomber...

    You have to monitor the blinking lights every 15 minutes and must avoid MRIs, microwave ovens and anything magnetic while the pill is going through your system. After 8 hours, they take the computer back and download the images.If you don't see the evidence over the next few days that the pillcam is no longer inside you, you need to have an X-ray before having an MRI.

    I was a little lightheaded from lack of water (you prep with a clear liquid diet the previous day, but cannot ingest even water after 10 pm the previous night) and had some minor cramping while it was going thought the system, but absolutely no big deal.

    Pretty fascinating technology!

    White Sox slugger Jim Thome and his wife were in the audience for the Oprah show last February. Dr. Oz was the featured guest. This program re-aired yesterday.

    The Oprah show would put Jim on camera during the more "female" medical discussions. I'm not quoting those here.

    Anyway, I read in the Chicago Tribune today that Jim Thome and his wife became the proud parents of a baby girl last month. Hmmm, is that around 9 months or so after the Oprah show???

    Interesting quote from show:
