Juno What’s in Space? Show

Jul 12, 2016

Health Matters celebrates the arrival of the Juno spacecraft at Jupiter with this show. We count our losers – raw cookie dough, Flu-Mist flu vaccine, and the Clemson bite counter. Tying Medicaid dental and vision benefits to work and public service came out even, but the ultimate losers or consumers who have to buy their prescriptions at higher and higher prices.

Tip: An indoor laboratory study found that permethrin-treated sneakers and socks reduced your risk of tick bite by 70 times. Workers in North Carolina are protected by permethrin for at least one year. Permethrin is excellent tick protection for your clothing, but should not be used on your skin.
