Recently, Brahmbhatt appeared live on FOX 35 Good Day Orlando to discuss a new study about the use of antibiotics for appendicitis. Brahmbhatt explained when antibiotics may be appropriate instead of removing an appendix, when surgery is necessary, what people need to know about appendicitis symptoms, the function of the appendix and why surgery may ultimately be the answer for most patients.

Later Brahmbhatt explained a new test for measuring body fat. What is the string test and could it replace the BMI measurement to determine if you should diet?
