Stephen Hawking show

Apr 24, 2018

This show salutes the late theoretical physicist, hero of today’s youth, Stephen Hawking. Hawking was able to link certain behaviors of black holes to an explanation of how the universe was born. He described the characteristics of a black hole, and predicted that it would emit radiation. Health Matters talks about coffee, and prescription and recreational drugs during pregnancy.

Tip:  according to a recent report, US medical care is so expensive because of the extra administrative costs with multiple insurance companies issuing different types of bills, high prices for technology and drugs, and higher salaries for physicians, nurses, and healthcare providers. It seems to Health Matters that reform should start with administrative complexity.
