Cecil Helman ,

This unique combination of frontline health worker and detached academic informs the many stories that make up this fascinating book.

Radio 4 ,
Early research in the 1990s suggested that babies born with a lower birth weight were at increased risk of developing diabetes in later life.

Richard Hannaford follows the population studies that have found the answers to these and other questions about the emergence of this condition.

Building a Healthier Britain - 02 Fluoride

Adding fluoride to the water supply has always been a polarised debate. Some think it will prevent tooth decay while others say its safety has not been proven.

Richard Hannaford asks whether science can ever solve this controversy.

Melvyn Bragg ,
Neuroscience used to work – by examining the dead or investigating the damaged – but now things have changed.

In Our Time - The Brain : A History

Melvyn Bragg ,
Despite dissections of brains both human and animal throughout the following centuries, in 1669 the Danish anatomist, Nicolaus Steno, still lamented that, “the brain, the masterpiece of creation, is almost unknown to us.” Why was the brain seen as a mystery for so long and how have our perceptions of how it works and what it symbolises changed over the centuries?
