Fox News, 03:52

Dr. David Samadi, robotic prostatectomy expert and Fox News Medical A-Team contributor, discusses conflicting studies on the pros and cons of red wine consumption. One study points to the cardiovascular benefits of red wine in reducing heart disease and increasing metabolism in obese men. In contrast, another indicates an increase in breast cancer risk among women consuming red wine. Dr. Samadi assures viewers that, in moderation, the resveratrol found in red wine can be beneficial to our health. Consuming a moderate three glasses per week has shown the ability to reduce diabetes, lower blood pressure and even prolong life. As a prostate cancer expert, Dr. Samadi is well versed in medical research and believes the breast cancer findings linked to red wine are not cause for alarm. The study found a very slight increase in breast cancer risk related to significant red wine consumption. Many times, Dr. Samadi reminds us, research is performed on mice and there are limitations to the findings. As with most things Dr. Samadi believes moderation is key, and red wine does provide some medical benefits. Dr. Samadi is Vice Chairman of the Department of Urology and Chief of Robotics and Minimally Invasive Surgery at The Mount Sinai Medical Center.

The next day we went to see Dr. Samadi. In walked a tall surgeon, with a great grip when he shook hands.  He proceeded to show us what the male body looked like around the prostate, and all of the work that had to be done to make sure that Ken would come out with a fully functional body, minus his prostate.
