The Health Show #1112

By http://www.healthshow.org/


http://www.healthshow.org/ – Sometimes there's a problem that is getting so large that you want to give a list of huge numbers to try and get the message across. But when it comes to the America's growing elder population and it's struggles with dementia and Alzheimer's disease...number just don't do the problem justice. On this week's Health Show, we'll hear about some new studies into the minds of our elders.

We'll also hear from a physiologist who works with the elderly who says the fewer drugs the better. And then the story of an environmental health nightmare in the northeast that is still causing controversy even while it's being cleaned.
