Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news story regarding a man 100 years old that attributes his longevity to taking daily cold showers. The article also outlines how someone born in 1900 would have expected to live to be 47.3 years old and someone born in 2002 can expect to live to be 77.3 years old. An expert on gerontology attributes the increased longevity to declines in infant mortality, improvements in public health, vaccines, prevention of killer diseases and a clean water supply. Doc disagrees citing statistics regarding infant mortality as well as the amounts of people killed, maimed and injured by the medical industry each year.
