Are your implantable devices sabotaging your health? Part 1
December 11, 2018
Are your implantable devices sabotaging your health? Award-winning investigative journalist Jeanne Lenzer joins us to discuss her book, "The Danger Within Us: America’s Untested, Unregulated Medical Device Industry and One Man’s Battle to Survive." Over 30 million Americans have them—that’s 1/10th of the population. Implantable devices include artificial hips and knees, pacemakers and defibrillators, breast implants, nerve stimulators, contraceptive devices, surgical mesh, and countless other applications. These devices can fail—sometimes with disastrous consequences. Why does the current regulatory scheme allow these minimally-tested devices to reach the marketplace? What is “disease creep”? And why is the treatment sometimes worse than the disease? What should every potential device recipient know before getting anything permanently implanted in their body? Click HERE for part 2.

Sexism In Medicine, Part 1
December 6, 2018
In "Doing Harm: The Truth About How Bad Medicine and Lazy Science Leave Women Dismissed, Misdiagnosed, and Sick," feminist journalist Maya Dusenbery looks at the roots of sexism in medicine. Why are women’s health complaints often dismissed? How has Freudian psychology with its notions of “hysteria” and “conversion disorders” undermined the legitimacy of women’s complaints? Women are disproportionately affected by pain syndromes like fibromyalgia, incapacitating menstrual cramps, and migraines and IBS; they are also far more likely to suffer from autoimmune disorders; they are often under-treated for heart problems which are erroneously thought to be predominantly male. Why is research lagging in these areas that so disproportionately affect women? Does greater inclusion of women in the ranks of health professionals promise more female-centric care? Or do institutional barriers within a paternalistic system limit progress? How can women surmount obstacles to equitable care? Click HERE for part 2.
