Health Matters Radio Show

The word caucus either comes from an Algonquian word for “counselor” or from egg record for “drinking cup”. Do you gain knowledge from wise elders, or from beer? Well, you won’t gain knowledge from Health Matters. We talk about snow shoveling and heart disease, drug prices, and the new CRISPR method for altering human DNA.

Tip: Sometimes blood-pressure medicines, called ace inhibitors, can cause a cough. These are very good blood-pressure medicines, and 30% of the time changing brands will solve the problem.
