Winter storms like “bomb cyclones” can be life-threatening, so it’s important to know how to winterize, not only your car, but yourself. In this episode, Dr. Joe Alton discusses different ways to make sure you survive that car trip out in the blizzard, including all the supplies that would make sense to keep in the car just in case.

Also, dental extraction is a rare thing you’d have to do yourself these days, but in long-term survival, someone has to do it, and you’re elected. How to go about it? Dr. Alton tell you in this segment.

Plus, Chestnuts have distinct health benefits which we’ll tell you about, but also let’s talk about the efforts to revive the American Chestnut, a rare tree in America’s landscape today, but more than a quarter of our Eastern and Midwest forests 100 years ago.

Lastly, Dr. Alton talks about canine influenza, which seems to be more prevalent this year than others. What is the dog flu and can it, one day, mutate to infect humans. What you need to know for your dog and, maybe, yourself!
