Plastic Surgeon Peter Bela Fodor doesn't.  His new book, "Be Your Best" hilights every conceivable operation, all the risks, rewards and even the actual mechanics of each procedure.

July was the hottest month ever recorded, and August isn't far behind.  With all the heat, how can you stay cool while working out? researchers at California State University in Fullerton recently poured cold water over the heads of a group of overheated runners in an effort to find out.
