Your Health

In show #9 our field piece deals with the treatment of fibroid tumours. Even though hysterectomies are still standard treatment for severe fibroid tumours, many doctors and patients have been looking for alternatives. We may have treatment that could spare the womb, if only government could spare the money. Vaccines such as those for polio, smallpox and diptheria have saved millions of lives wordwide. Many deadly diseases have been eliminated altogether, and others have been tamed to the point where they're no longer considered major threats.

Dr. Paul Caldwell's topic this week is colon-cancer.
