Dr. Oz and Cleveland Clinic doctors team up for new book

CLEVELAND - A new book helps teens learn about their bodies and how to take care of them. It's called "YOU: The Owner's Manual for Teens: A Guide to a Healthy Body and a Happy Life."

The book is written by Dr. Mehmet Oz and the Cleveland Clinic's Dr. Michael Roizen. They joined with teen health expert Dr. Ellen Rome of the Cleveland Clinic and even got insight from Dr. Oz's own teenaged daughter, Zoe. The new book covers topics from sex to skin care.

It explains how teens should approach their health and improve their overall quality of life. According to the doctors, the biggest health threat that teens face isn't medical, it's actually their own bad decisions. The number one cause of injury and death is accidents, and the doctors said that's because teens' brains just aren't equipped to make good decisions. The doctors laid out advice for how to overcome the challenges and make good choices.

To make those smart decisions, the doctors said that teens should hit that snooze button. Quality sleep is important to health and development, and most teens aren't getting enough.

The book goes on sale on Tuesday, June 7 and costs $16. Drs. Roizen and Rome will join Dr. Oz on his television show "The Dr. Oz Show" on June 7. You can watch it on Channel 5 at 10 a.m.
