Your Health

Your Health is hosted by Maureen Taylor. Episode twenty-six. Brain Aneurysms. Many of us have an aneurysm right this moment, but only a fraction of those will rupture. Lisa Goodall was only 36 when she experienced severe symptoms of a brain aneurysm that went undiagnosed for a dangerously long time. And, we look back at things that were touted as medical breakthroughs and see if they lived up to the hype. Maureen interviews Dr. Miriam Shuchman who teaches medical ethics at the State University of New York and writes a column for the Globe and Mail. Also this week, chemistry professor, Joe Schwarcz looks at Selenium.
