She had company in this subterranean world of the doctor's experiments....

He tackles a variety of health issues, from smoking ("the nicotine patch works best when placed directly over the mouth") to the body mass index ("useless, corrupt, and irrelevant") and provides sensible, up-to-date advice about commonplace conditions and remedies while poking good-natured fun at his patients, Britney Spears, lawn bowling, and most of all, himself. Whether tracing the tenuous myth of tendonitis, analyzing the role of acupuncture, or meditating on the Museum of Menstruation, Dr. Dave holds nothing back as he takes on the foibles of human health and modern medicine.
