We tackle listener questions about what Bad Patient really means and where the podcast title came from, as well as what causes cravings. We wonder: Can cinnamon solve the obesity epidemic (spoiler alert, no)?
We also learn how to make Thanksgiving super awkward by sharing family health histories at the table. A guy hopes his genetic disorder can be solved by gene editing, but readers wonder: Is this PLAYING GOD? (Spoiler alert #2, also no.) And physicians and pharmacists are the most likely of all health professionals to show up sick for work. We're talking fevers and everything, folks. In fact, 40% of healthcare professionals work with influenza-like illnesses.
