Monologue

Dr. Wallach discusses story of the 16 year old boy who has Hodgkin's disease.  The boy had chemo therapy over a year ago and is refusing the therapy now that the disease has returned.  A court ordered the boy to take the chemo-therapy and gave the state shared custody with the parents.  Also Dr. Wallach discusses new cases of avian flu in China.  Finally Doc discusses the increase in bariatric surgery now that Medicare will pay for the procedure.
