Your Health

In Show #17 our field pieces takes a look at a disorder called Williams Syndrome. It's not obvious at birth and although as children they have health problems, at first, they seem unrelated. This rare disorder is caused by a missing or inverted chromosome. Maureen Taylor's studio guests are Dr. Rob Myers, a cardiologist at Sunnybrook and Women's Health Sciences Centre, and Carol Kushner, a health policy consultant. They discuss the heart drugs called statins, and the treatment of people who are "nearly sick." Recent studies support the idea of giving medications to people before they even have symptoms of disease. Dr. Paul Caldwell tells us about the reasons for yawning.
