CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The doctor is in to make sure you make healthy choices when picking your Thanksgiving turkey.

Tom or hen? Natural or pastured? Fresh or frozen? There’s so much to consider when you get your bird.

Dr. Tony is telling you what to look out for. He says hens usually have more breast meat.

You should also be aware that there is a risk for food borne illnesses. If you can’t buy organic, Dr. Tony suggests buying a frozen turkey. It’s best to thaw it in the fridge.
