    My focus is always to give you current medical information that has some laughter attached. So try this one … Warning: Do not shampoo your hair in the shower as the shampoo runs down your body when you are rinsing off your hair. I am so happy to give you a health warning that is useful to us all. I should have figured this one out a long time ago but now is good. When I wash my hair, the shampoo runs down my whole body, and printed very clearly on the shampoo label is this warning: For extra body and volume. No wonder I have been gaining weight! I got rid of that shampoo and now I shower with dishwashing soap. Its label reads: Dissolves fat that is otherwise difficult to remove. Problem solved! So if I don’t answer the phone, I’ll be in the shower!
