WMKY

Comey Over Show

May 23, 2017

Health Matters salutes former FBI director James Comey with a delightful comedy about Powassan virus, Alzheimer’s drugs, cotton-tipped applicators, and surgical robots. Brought to you by our tick fixers top six quick tick fixing tricks, things get pretty raucous in the last segment. Better strap on your helmets for this one.

Tip: Avoid tick bites. Mow the grass close, put a barrier between your yard in the woods, and wear 10-35% DEET when you are in soft leaves, high weeds or brush.
