#500 Show Summary (Health Matters 500: What Went Wrong? Show):
The lawyers are preparing their closing arguments, and a Senate subcommittee will open hearings next week – how did Health Matters get on the air? And how have we stayed on the air for 10 years? Health Matters marks our 10 year anniversary with a look back, devastating news on prescription narcotic drugs, and a glimmer of hope regarding deaths from all-terrain vehicles.
Tip: over the past 10 years, 48,000 women have died from prescription narcotic overdoses. No matter what the benefit of these drugs, it is extremely hard to justify their existence scientifically.
