The Health Show #1273

I cannot do an Alex Trabek impression so bear with me: This computer ‘question answering system” took the country by storm when it won on a popular game show.  The question: What is Watson?  On today’s Health Show, we’ll hear how clinical laboratories are converting this computer technology into Dr. Watson.

Then we’ll hear from a man who went the extra mile and flew halfway around the world to try and find a cure for his allergies and asthma.  Then he walked a few feet...barefoot...in poop.
