  • So why do I have warts on my fingers? I have been vegan for four and a half years. How can I get rid of them?

    • Michael Greger M.D.

      The animal you most likely got your wart virus infection from was Homo sapiens. Wart viruses are thought to be typically transmitted when using a towel or something someone else with a wart has used. Salicylic acid is probably the most effective treatment (75% success rate compared to about 50% for placebo). Thanks for your question, Heidi!

  • HI Dr I love your videos, keep up the good work. I have been trying to find information about the prevention of sore throats on your website. I am a vegetarian and do no have milk but I seem to constantly getting a sore throat can you help?

      Hi Andrew, there are a number of reasons why someone might get a sore throat. If you’re getting them often, you might want to look at possible lifestyle factors. Things like pollution, not washing your hands, or even dehydration could contribute to the frequency and severity of the symptoms you’re feeling. Preventative dietary strategy? Drink lots of fluids (hot or room temperature) when you’re feeling a sore throat come on. You might want to try a warm bowl of Miso Soup to get the pro-biotic benefits (just don’t over-heat and kill the health promoting enzymes). Avoid alcohol. And make sure you’re getting vitamins and minerals such as Zinc, vitamin E and vitamin C. Oh, and make sure you’re getting enough sleep:
