5:47 pm
so they're more engaged, with fewer high health risks and lower medical costs. take control of your health slash take control. steve: a fox 5 health news. cryotherapy has been endorsed by lots of people. now effectiveness of the treatment is being questioned after a salon worker died after she went into the machine. dari: wow. dr. manny in the house. dr. manny, this is one of hot, hot new things. we did a story about it. a lot of people are into it. hot, hot cold, cold new thing. >> sorry. i'll go on the record.
5:48 pm
i think it's silly. this is a new technology. it comes from the idea that if you freeze something, you get rejuvenation, wrinkle effect and all that. this is a whole body cryotherapy. you go into a therapy. it goes down to minus 200 fahrenheit. for a few minutes or so. then you come out and it's supposed to create these changes in your body, which brings the endorphins which bring the anti-inflammatory cells -- look, there's no scientific evidence whatsoever. i would argue if you have risk factors that you don't know, like high blood pressure, diabetes. some people are severely allergic to cold. you can get a mass reaction, an anaphylactic reaction and die. i don't know if this was a man error. this is a person that was there by herself. they went in and found her hours later completely frozen.
5:49 pm
the bottom line is there's no scientific evidence whatsoever for these machines. they're run by nonmedical people. if you ask any scientist, they'll tell you there's -- steve: how is that possible? >> because they extrapolate. there are machines that athletes use for freezing muscles and things like that to relieve pain. all of that -- cryotherapy on certain spots on your body under medical supervision, there are tools used to enhance healing of the muscle. now when you take it to a spa level, when you put this machine, which is not fda approved, it's not an fda approved product and it has no medical validity, you're going don't use it. manny. i know everything you're saying. we can't underestimate the fact, it doesn't make it right, but this is one of the hottest trend things. people see it as a weight loss tool. people see it as rejuvenating.
5:50 pm
you can get energy from it. >> it's a commercial -- dari: it's a period of time that -- a certain period of time that people are supposed to go in there. i'm not arguing for it. i'm saying it's not something that is really obscure. >> it is not obscure. [indiscernible - talking over one another] >> at the end of the day, you're putting your life in danger and it doesn't do anything for you. bottom line it doesn't do anything for you. bottom line, it does not do anything for you. donate the $400 to a nice charity and somebody in need. steve: good advice. dr. manny, we appreciate it. walk outside and catch a good chill. nick is feeling like late october. nick: an on target day. we had a nice morning to start with the sun. the clouds won out this afternoon. they'll lead to rain and potentially a lot of rain as we get into later tomorrow into tomorrow night, especially -- we need it.
