dari: fox 5 health news and devastating neck and head trauma have plagued football teams for decades. now a new york city chiropractor designed a special collar he says can help prevent serious brain injuries. obviously that could be huge. steve: joining us, fox's dr. manny alvarez. i'm a little skeptical. what do you think about this? >> football has to change. i love football, okay?
the future of football. football has to adapt itself with new technology. new technology is vital, whether you're talking about high school students, college students. we know for sure that chronic impacts time after time after time do create permanent injury, especially in the brain. that could be devastating. kids today are bigger. they're faster than they were before. so when you look at the neck in particular, all the collars that are out there, the bulldog collar, all those things don't do the job properly. dr. kerr is a very good doctor and has been doing research for a long, long time working with virginia tech university, looking at how do we take the energy from an impact and displace it away from the head and neck. that's the whole point here. that when you hit somebody, you're able to displace the energy away from your neck.
deadly injuries, if you will. remember, football is a game of inches. when you talk about neck injuries or head injuries, you're talking about millimeters. you're talking about centimeters. a small centimeter displacement in the spine of your neck could lead you to have permanent nerve damage. this is exactly why i think all of these technologies have to be incorporated at the high school level, at the college level if football is going to survive. steve: well said. >> you'll see. listen, we have t-shirts today that measure blood pressure and heart. all of these uniforms have to change. they're going to change. otherwise thefl is going to be -- steve: a lot of money at stake. the key to weight loss could be in your head. a survey finds dieters struggle because they don't understand the emotional impact food has in our lives. i agree 100 percent. >> this is true.
is all about the commitment to less calories, more exercise, watching what you eat. but there's a psychological component to it. the psychological component is to understand why you're eating the things you're eating and at the same time, look at the emotions that you have. depression, anxiety. all of these things. the mind controls everything. i always say that. so for a lot of people -- new year's is coming up, your resolutions. almost 94 percent of everybody that has a resolution to lose weight, they fail after 30 days. if they do it, they gain more weight back. steve: they get demoralized. >> weather is terrible. dari: comfort food time. >> exactly. you get more depression, more anxiety. and you go back. understand your mind and perhaps you'll have a successful diet. that's the key to the message. dari: it's a tough time of year with the parties and thanksgiving. >> think about it. go see a psychiatrist or something.
steve: fair enough. thank you, dr. manny. he alluded to it. you hide inside and do nothing. nick: how did i get dragged into the conversation? >> it's all your fault. steve: always the weatherman's fault. nick: except when the weather is nice. we only hear it when the weather is bad like today, rainy. we need the rain. it's been so dry. our rainfall deficit continues. we'll take whatever rain we can get. we had .2 of an inch today. more tonight and particularly tomorrow in the afternoon will be our best chance of steadiest forecast for tomorrow. city. just to the south, middle to upper 50s. philly, 56. it stayed in the 40s to the north albany to boston. 52 at buffalo. and pittsburgh at 56. here's fox 5 sky guardian. the steadiest rain in our neighborhood now is really up towards the eastern part of the hudson valley. get up towards putnam county,
