Many people today look to the advice of health experts to increase their life span, ward off cancer or shed a few pounds. People are bombarded with so much information on what foods they should eat, how many times a week they need to exercise and what steps they need to take to ward off depression. Interestingly enough, many shows have popped up in an attempt to fill society’s need for more information on health related topics. Here’s where we have our top five TV health experts that I’m sure most of you are very familiar with.

1. Be charismatic and well spoken.
