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: *A Hangover Cure on the Horizon: Researchers in California are looking into an ancient Chinese herbal medicine derived from the Asian tree Hovenia, which they claim can stop acute intoxication and the awful hangover feeling the next day. Does it work? *Ye Olde Diseases-What Happened to the Diseases of Yesteryear? SARS, bird flu, swine flu... While today it seems there is always a new "disease of the moment" emerging, Tonic takes a step back in time to look at some of the most prominent disease epidemics throughout history. *Medication Errors: Every year, millions of people suffer adverse health effects in response to medication-often leading to hospitalization and sometimes even to death-yet most of those effects are preventable. It's important that you know what you're taking.
