#506 Show Summary (You Need Us, We Regulate You show):

Named for a quote from a bad conference, this show also struggles for redemption. We talk about how your brain keeps track of time, the affordable care act, acid reflux, and vaccinations. With great material like this, all we need is a little more talent…

Tip: Remember the alarm symptoms for acid reflux, or GERD – trouble swallowing, bleeding, weight loss, and recurrent vomiting. These should prompt a doctor’s visit and possible endoscopy.

#505 Show Summary (Mark O’ Polio show):

25 healthcare workers have been murdered in the past 12 months, while trying to vaccinate young people for polio in Third World countries. We salute them and other healthcare workers for their sacrifices while trying to take care of our health. Unfortunately, a Health Matters salute consists of a show filled with offbeat medical tips, such as how to remove your manly part from a zipper, the beer most likely to send you to the emergency room, and the penalties of being a firstborn.
