Wednesday House Call, September 4, 2019: Misinformation abounds, people listen, and children suffer.
Dr Barry Dworkin joins Rob Snow to discuss the latest health stories of the week. Measles outbreak in NY City ends. Epidemic of measles in New Zealand. We talk about how the anti vaccine movement’s misinformation campaigns has caused great harm to children. We also review the case of a teenage boy who went blind from restricting his diet to junk food.
Your calls about:
- Can you bet measles twice?
- A caller notes that we pay more attention to ebola than measles yet the latter is the greater threat.
- Evaluation of a toe nail prior to a wedge resection
- Post surgical pain after hernia repair.
