Monologue

Dr. Wallach discusses the fact that the U.S. ranks 46th among industrialized nations in health and longevity.  Despite the fact that the U.S. spends nearly 75% of the worlds total on health care.  Outlining a recent report that found 15 million Americans are harmed or injured by the medical industry every year.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a couple of recent news stories.  The first story concerns the "weekend effect".  This is a term coined a few years ago when studies found that going to the hospital on weekends increased the risk of death for certain health challenges.  A recent study has found that ischemic strokes can now also be added to that list.  The second story concerns Coca Cola and PepsiCo starting to market "healthy drinks".  Basically sodas with a few nutrients added, but the drinks are still carbonated.
