Tweetable Quotes

“An X-Ray is something that a doctor can order. And, what they typically will do to assess the growth plates is they take an X-Ray of the hand and they see if the finger bones are with growth plates that are opened or closed.” (05:25) (Dr. Brian)

“What happens when you sleep - besides those really awesome, sometimes funky dreams - is that your body releases growth hormone. That happens while you’re sleeping. So, teenagers, try to get eight to nine hours of sleep. That’s the recommendation to maximize your growth hormone release.” (07:17) (Dr. Brian)

“And so, I get this little rock from the corner of the tent, and I just aim up at the lightbulb and just let her rip. And the lightbulb exploded and I was able to go to bed. That’s how important sleep was to me when I was young.” (09:28) (Dr. Brian)

“The key type of food that has been proven to help teenagers grow is cow milk. Cow milk stimulates growth for sure. There’s lots of studies on that. And it has to be cow’s milk unfortunately. If you don’t like milk or you’re lactose-intolerant, you can get Lactaid which is a milk with lactose removed.” (10:58) (Dr. Brian)
