Leaded Gasoline [electronic resource]: Trading IQ for Octane

As a gasoline additive, lead suppresses engine knock. Lead is also a well-known poison, and yet during the 1920s it was championed over safer alternatives-and even backed by the U.S. surgeon general. Why? This program presents the history of leaded gasoline and its impact on human health and intelligence, most notably as documented in Herbert Needleman's controversial study of schoolchildren. Professor Needleman is featured, along with Bill Kovarik, of Radford University; Philippe Grandjean, of the University of Southern Denmark; and Angela Mathee, of the Medical Research Council, Johannesburg.

Insomnia [electronic resource]

An inability to sleep is far more than a nuisance-it's a genuine health problem. This program examines insomnia from a medical perspective, exploring the physical, emotional, and psychological aspects of the disorder. Interviews with doctors who specialize in treating sleep difficulties provide historical background on the affliction, the personal and professional hazards it can present, and dietary and behavioral adjustments that can improve the quality of sleep. The advent of safe and effective sleep medications is also described in detail, while observations from patients who have overcome insomnia provide a reassuring human dimension to the discussion.
