Health Matters

Originally aired on Thursday, April 8th, 2010
Look and Listen: Health Matters

A show themed on one thing nobody wants to lose: Health. First we’ll have a report on magic remedies for the common cold. Then a story about a condition called Americanitis. We’ll visit Richmond to find out how a high crime rate distracts residents there from paying enough attention to industrial health hazards. And we’ll also learn about a controversial new tax on tanning salons introduced in the healthcare reform bill. Finally, an interview about how the bill will affect the UC Berkeley campus community.
