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: *Are Stents Better for Blocked Arteries than Medications and a Healthy Lifestyle? One of the most common procedures performed around the world is called stenting. It's where doctors open up a blocked artery in the heart by inserting a sliver of metal into the artery to keep it open. However, there are allegations that far too many stents are being put in, when medications and lifestyle changes could do the job just as well if not better. Dr. Norman Swan speaks to leading cardiologist Associate Professor David Playford about treating the person rather than the artery. *How Adults Are Putting Children at Risk of Whooping Cough: Whooping cough can devastate individuals and families, and the biggest concern is tiny babies who are too young to be immunized.
