Monday night motivation

I thoroughly enjoy your podcast and the clarity you bring to health issues. Listening to you on the way home motivates me to open the laptop again (to do my own research) after playing footie and a full day at work.

Clearly Communicated

Dr Norman Swan does an excellent job of clearly communcating everything to do with our anatomy, whether it is funcioning as it should or not. That information can really help to allay fears and make life easier.
