Straight Talk on Health

How do you live your healthiest life when health information seems to change every day? Each week on Straight Talk on Health, Dr. Chet Zelasko examines the health headlines, digs into the latest research studies, explores the claims of miracle nutrients and diets, and gives you his insight about what’s real and what’s not so you can make informed decisions about your health. Straight Talk on Health airs Tuesday afternoons during WGVU’s Midday West Michigan.

The health information Dr. Chet talks about is for educational purposes only and not a substitute for medical advice from your healthcare provider; it should not be used to diagnose or treat a health problem or disease. This information is, however, designed to motivate you to work towards better health, which includes seeing your healthcare professional regularly.
