Ep. 13: Blindness, Super Salad, Fish, Penis Stickers
December 23, 2017 Bad Patient

Gene therapy could help thousands of Americans who experience blindness, but it might host $1 million per person. Leafy greens can help you stay smarter than your neighbor. An RN asks kids and their parents whether they ate fish, linking it to better sleep. And, well, advances in contraception mean hundreds of couples will test a new contraceptive gel. Does it work? We're not yet sure, but it'll hopefully work better than a new penis sticker for men that pretty clearly has some risks associated with it.
