More To Life

One in four Ontario men will get it, but if caught early enough, prostate cancer is not a death sentence. But, when and how to screen is still controversial and the treatments can often cause serious problems like impotence. Toronto oncologist Dr. Neil Fleshner will be here to take your calls and address the issues. Also today, The Underground Railroad was a network of clandestine people and homes that helped thousands of American slaves find freedom in Ontario during the 19th century. One of the stops on the railroad was the home of John Freeman Walls - a former slave from North Carolina. His great-great grandson Dr. Bryan Walls, a retired dentist from Windsor, turned his ancestral home into the John Freeman Walls Historic Site and Underground Railroad Museum. Dr. Walls took the family legend and immortalized it in his book, The Road that Led to Somewhere. This show also contains one Your Health item, "Ultrasound".
