Under the Dome Show

Aug 5, 2013

#502 Show Summary (Under the Dome Show):

Remember – August is Hair Loss Awareness Month. Health Matters does not endorse any hair replacement product or technology. We do worry about West Nile virus, falling life expectancy in Eastern Kentucky, and tall women developing cancer. We will explain why this week.

Tip: We believe that municipal mosquito control efforts will need to be intensified in order to avoid outbreaks of West Nile virus infections.
