Dr. James McGinty On Weight Loss

Dr. James McGinty, Chief of Surgery and Surgical Services at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, sat with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to offer weight loss advice.

“I think if you’re struggling with weight,” McGinty says, “focus on eating the right foods.” That means no processed foods.

“Try to go with what God put on this earth,” he says. By following this, vegetables and fruits should be a main part of your diet.

Edgar Rivera Colón on Free Needle Exchange

Edgar Rivera Colón, Asst. Professor of Sociology and Urban Studies at Saint Peter’s University, sat with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss the opioid crisis in America.

 Colón feels that free needle exchange is not promoting the use of drugs for those who otherwise might not be engaging in them. “People are already doing it,” he says. “There is a spectrum of behavior, and what we have to do is edge people towards a cleaner and easier way of living.”

This easier way of living means no drugs, no steps and no mediation. “What we’ve learned in the HIV crisis is that harm reduction is one tool we can use, and we should implement it on a national level.”
