"Health Screenings: Are we looking too hard for disease?"

With Second Opinion Primary Care Physician
Louis J. Papa, MD
Clinical Professor of Medicine
University of Rochester Medical Center 

As medical technology continues to advance, we can screen for disease like never before.  But are we going overboard? Are we digging for disease that would never cause any symptoms? Are these tests resulting in unnecessary procedures and treatments that are causing more harm than good? Mammograms, colonoscopies, full-body CT scans, genetic testing....join us as Dr. Papa talks about health screenings in the very open and candid way that he is known for. Confused about what tests you should be getting based on your age, gender and risk factors? You won't be after this show!

Food allergy is an abnormal response by your immune system when you eat certain foods. Food allegies can be so severe that in many schools, a peanut-free table is provided for children with a severe peanut allergy--an allery that can be deadly.  Can children outgrow a dangerous food allergy as they get older, and can people acquire food allergiese in adulthood?  Learn what's happening in your body when you are reacting to a food, the difference between food allergy and food intolerance, why it seems like food allergies are on the rise, and what you can do to protect you or your child if you have a food allergy. Dr. Mustafa will be available to take your questions.
