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.
