Summary
In Tonic, Dr. Norman Swan leads a team of reporters who cover all aspects of health, from lifestyle to complementary medicines to the most recent medical discoveries. Topics covered in this episode include: *Infectious Diseases-Where Are They Now? A Retrospective and What We've Got to Look Out For in the Future: We've seen some scary epidemics in recent years, as viruses mutate and present in forms that threaten our existence, inciting panic within the public. The media floods us with negative stories and reminds us of the fragility of human life and our experiences with diseases of the past. Then the hype dies down and many of us seemingly forget about the disease and indeed about the threat. Dr. Norman Swan speaks to Professor Stephen Morse of Columbia University-a world-leading expert in new and emerging diseases-about recent epidemics to find out: where are they now? He warns we can't be complacent: there are many diseases out there we don't know about yet.

Summary
In Tonic, Dr. Norman Swan leads a team of reporters who cover all aspects of health, from lifestyle to complementary medicines to the most recent medical discoveries. Topics covered in this episode include: *Urban Pollution and Our Health: Much of our environmental focus in recent years has been on climate change, and as a result urban pollution has taken a bit of a backseat. But as the world's population grows, there are more people living from the land, more cars on the road, and bigger industries making more products, meaning pollution is getting worse. In some areas it's reaching levels that are having a major impact on our health. Casey Beros speaks with a leading researcher in urban pollution from one of the biggest cities in the world to find out what the latest evidence is showing, and unfortunately it's not good news, even for those not living in the big smoke. *Treating Chronic Fatigue.

Summary
In Tonic, Dr. Norman Swan leads a team of reporters who cover all aspects of health, from lifestyle to complementary medicines to the most recent medical discoveries. Topics covered in this episode include: *Impaired Speech: People with a stutter find it difficult to communicate, but there is more than just the physical ability to communicate that is part of the stutter. Professor Luc De Nil, a speech pathologist from the University of Toronto explains the underlying psychology of why people suffer from stutters. And as the ability to communicate is something so basically human, we investigate some of the possible paths towards lessening a stutter. *Effectiveness of Medication and the Sun: Prescribed medication isn't always effective, and Professor Erik Eliasson from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden suggests that the weather may be a factor in how medications work. The answer may be in our vitamin D levels, which go up in summer and down in winter.
