The Art of Aging Gracefully

It's a delightful review on an important topic that concerns all of us, young and old. We all age, so it's well to forget about it and live life to the fullest. Since the trend is toward an older population, there're bound to be more age-friendly corporations. When focused on making a contribution, we turn into valuable citizens. Besides, Life is a gift, we may as well savor it while we have it. A most worthwhile discussion. Thank you

Enough with hydroxychloroquine!

The Bottom Line Personal Podcasts are generally informative and have experts well-versed in their subjects. Naturally the main focus for the past few months has been the coronavirus pandemic, and rightfully so. But Sarah’s continual obsession on promoting hydroxychloroquine as a viable treatment modality has strained her credibility as her guests, aside from Dr. Teitelbaum, have discounted its usefulness and have concurred with recent studies that suggest it can be dangerous in some patients. It’s time to move on and talk about what healthcare professionals have learned and are now finding effective and how we can protect ourselves in these times.
