Monologue

Dr. Wallach discusses his new book the "Black Gene Lies" a book refuting the assumption that some diseases hit some ethinic groups at greater percentage.  Also mentioning Dr. Jennifer Daniels CD "Slave Quarter Cures".  Doc mentions a ongoing lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson regarding disk implants that are failing in patients.

Pearls of Wisdom

Doug and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article concerning a recent government study on bariatric surgical procedures.  With 30% of adults obese in the U.S. there has been a sharp increase in these procedures, especially since Medicare has begun paying for the operations.  The study conducted by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality found that almost 40% of bariatric patients experience complications with six months of the procedure.  Sometimes more than doubling the overall cost if the patient has to be readmitted to the hospital.
