The Healthcare System of France
 
05:43
We've covered the United States and Canada. today, we cross the Atlantic to discuss the healthcare System in France. Their system is a combination of universal social insurance with some optional private overlays. It's expensive (relative to most), but it's arguably the best in the world. Watch and learn why.

Is Marijuana Harmful to Health?
 
05:47
There's just no way to talk about marijuana without someone completely misinterpreting what I say. Some of you are going to call me a fascist for saying anything bad about pot. Others are going to attack me for not coming down on it hard enough. But the truth of the matter is that many things that are far more dangerous than pot are totally legal in this country. That's not my opinion, it's what scientific studies show us. No one is saying marijuana is totally safe. But is it so bad for you that it should be illegal, even though it has benefits? Watch and decide. Happy weed day. Those of you who want to read more and see references can go here: http://theincidentaleconomist.com/wordpress/?p=54913 And, yes, we do know about the new study on brain development, which came out long after we taped. But as with a lot of research, it's being totally misinterpreted by the media. Go check out the references to see a nice article where the author of the study says the same thing.

Dietary Salt Recommendations Don't Line Up with Recent Evidence
 
04:42
Salty foods are delicious, but for decades we've been told that sodium in our diets is a bad thing. Recent studies suggest that while limiting salt intake is probably a good idea for people with high blood pressure, it probably isn't helpful for people who don't have blood pressure issues. In fact, an extremely low salt diet may even be more harmful than a more standard intake.

RAND and the Moral Hazard: Healthcare Triage #10
 
06:52
As we've explained in previous episodes, insurance is complicated. Even John gets confused (watch the video!). But there's a reason we have all these deductibles, co-pays, and co-insurance. It's because of the moral hazard, and a very important research study known as the RAND Health Insurance Experiment. Watch this episode and learn all about it. Make sure you subscribe above so you don't miss any upcoming episodes!

What Kills Us? How We Understand Risk.
 
06:16
One of the things that baffles me about people is how they completely misunderstand risk. Lots of my friends panic about things that have no real chance of killing them, but ignore the things that will. This can lead us to make irrational decisions, and sometimes irrational policy. What really will kill us? Watch and learn. Make sure you subscribe above so you don't miss any upcoming episodes!

Healthcare in Germany
 
07:27
The last international health care system we covered – Singapore – got a great response from all of you. This week. We head back to Europe. Specifically, we're going to Germany. Their universal health care system is based on the principles of Bismark, which say that the state should provide only for those unable to provide for themselves. It's a private insurance system, and it's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage. Those of you who want to read more and see references can go here: http://theincidentaleconomist.com/wordpress/?p=57058 Additionally, Aaron's new book is out! Please consider buying a copy.

Exercise is NOT the Key to Weight Loss

Test Characteristics: How Accurate was that Test?
 
06:49
Does a positive test mean that you have a disease? Does a negative test mean you're healthy? Unfortunately, the answer to both these questions isn't a definitive "yes". How good a test is depends on it's sensitivity and specificity. Learn about both, and why understanding these test characteristics is so important. Next week we'll talk about what this all means in part II of this series, The Bayes Theorem.

Number Needed to Treat: Treatments Don't Work Like You Think They Work
 
06:52
One of the problems with the way we discuss health interventions is that we see them in black and white. Something is either good for you or bad for you. Things are rarely that simple, though. Moreover, there's "good for you" and "GOOD FOR YOU". How do you tell the difference? Watch and learn. Almost all of the data for this came from the amazing website TheNNT (http://thennt.com). You can go there to see those and more. Additionally, Aaron's new book is out! Please consider buying a copy.

Diets! Which Ones Work for Losing Weight and Keeping it Off?

There are so, so many diets out there. Some are low in fat, others are low in carbs. Some involve special foods, others tell you to avoid them. So what's the best diet for you? Watch and learn!

IUDs Are Pretty Great. So Why Aren't They More Popular?
 
05:30
Everyone talks about condoms as a way to prevent pregnancy. They're good, but nowhere near perfect. The pill is even better. But want to know what's amazing? Intrauterine devices, or IUDs. Why don't women use IUDs? They were pretty rare for a long time. But they're making a resurgence. They're also the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage.

You Probably Don't Need to Be on that Gluten-free Diet
 
08:48
This is another one of those videos that I expect many of you to hate. Gluten is surprisingly polarizing. Of course, most of the evidence that many of you will throw at me are anecdotes. And we all know that the plural of "anecdote" is not "data". So let's talk about gluten, and whether a gluten-free diet is for you. "Spoiler" – for the vast majority of you, the answer is "no".

Healthcare in England
 
06:12
We've done the US, Canada, and France. None of them are really socialized healthcare systems. To get at that, we need to go look at a system like that of the UK. More specifically, we're going to talk about England's National Health Service. See what a real "government run" system looks like, how it compares to yours, and what's good (and not so good) about it.

You're Probably not Dehydrated: The Eight Glasses of Water a Day Myth
 
06:46
How much water should you drink every day? Not as much as you've been told. This summer, like many summers before it, has seen a rash of articles warning us not only that is dehydration is dangerous, but that it is also ubiquitous. Real dehydration, when your body has lost a significant amount of water because of illness, excessive exercise or sweating, or an inability to drink, is a serious issue. But people with clinical dehydration almost always have symptoms of some sort. These reports are worried about something completely different. They fear that otherwise healthy adults and children are walking around dehydrated, so many that dehydration has reached epidemic proportions. Under scrutiny, however, this assertion fails to hold water. That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage. This was based on a piece Aaron wrote for the Upshot a while ago.

You can support Healthcare Triage on Patreon! We're raising money to make the show sustainable, and you can help. http://www.patreon.com/healthcaretriage I spend a lot of time writing and talking about what isn't true. Over the past few months, we've had lots of episodes talking about how many nutrition recommendations aren't supported by science. I've argued that what many people are telling you may be inaccurate. In response, lots of you have asked me what nutrition recommendations should say. The truth is that it's much easier to tell you what not to do, than to tell you what to do. But we don't avoid the hard questions. Recently I shared my nutrition recommendations over at the Upshot at the New York Times, and they were surprisingly popular. So I'm going to share them with you, here on Healthcare Triage You should go read that piece, which all of this is based on.

Healthcare in Singapore
 
08:13
Singapore is a small city-state that likely isn't as well known to you as some of the other countries we've discussed before. But they've got one of the most fascinating health care systems around. It's cheap, it's pretty much universal, and it achieves some amazingly strong outcomes. It's also much different in structure than other systems we've covered before. Watch and learn - you'll be glad you did. If you want to learn more, there's pretty much only one book you need to read. It's short, it's awesome, and it's still free in Kindle format.

Sugar Doesn't Make Kids Hyper: Healthcare Triage #3
 
06:15
Do you think that sugar makes kids hyper? Well, you're wrong. Yes, WRONG. How do we know? Randomized controlled trials. RCTs are pretty much the most robust study design there is, and also the only way to prove causality. This week's episode of Healthcare Triage explains how randomized controlled trials work, and why they are superior to other types of studies. It also explains how they've been used to prove, without a doubt, that sugar doesn't make kids hyper. Don't believe it?

The EpiPen and What's Wrong with American Healthcare
 
07:02
Three times in the last two weeks, people - a patient, a colleague and my wife - told me stories about how out of control the price of EpiPens were. Monday, my New York Times colleagues recounted in detail how expensive the devices have become in recent years. All tell the tale of how much even basic health care can cost in the United States. But by digging a bit further, the story of EpiPens can also explain so much of what's wrong with our health care system. That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage.

Breakfast. Take it. Or leave it.
 
06:12
Lately, I've become a target for people who like to tell me that "I'm doing nutrition" wrong. Evidently, some people don't agree with my plea, "Don't judge" when it comes to what others eat. One of the things that horrifies my friends is that I don't eat breakfast. I'm just not hungry in the morning. A cup of coffee, and that's all I need until lunch. I've been that way for decades. This means that I'm subjected to periodic lectures on how breakfast is "the most important meal of the day". Yeah, that's a myth. It's also the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage.

You Can Do a Lot to Prevent Some Cancers

Americans seem very afraid of cancer. Much of this fear is legitimate. Cancer is a significant cause of death. Unlike other causes, it often seems to come out of nowhere. It's the "silent killer". But evidence increasingly argues that cancer may be preventable, too. Unfortunately, this has inflamed as much as it has assuaged people's fears. Cancer prevention is the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage. This episode was adapted from a column Aaron wrote for The Upshot.

Obamacare and October 1st: Healthcare Triage #1
 
06:56
http://www.healthcare.gov Healthcare Triage is a new series from Dr. Aaron Carroll and the team behind Crash Course and Mental Floss Videos. In this episode, Aaron gets a visit from noted hypochondriac John Green, and allays some of his fears about Obamacare. He provides an overview of what is going to happen on October 1st, when the Affordable Care Act, AKA Obamacare, goes into effect. Aaron will talk stuff like individual mandates, subsidies, and the three-legged stool of Obamacare, which is not a real stool. You'll learn who exactly is affected by the changes on October 1st, get a brief tour of healthcare.gov, and learn a little about alien alternative medicine, which also isn't even real. The rest of the video is totally real. All this, plus the aforementioned metaphorical furniture should make this pretty hard to resist.

What's the Deal with E-cigarettes and Vaping?

Healthcare Triage has merchandise! Get it here: http://dft.ba/-HCTmerch I've found that of almost all of the topics I write about over at my blog, the one that stirs up the most controversy, the one that generates me the most hate, the most emails and the most tweets is e-cigarettes. Defenders of them are very passionate, and surprisingly organized. Those that dislike them are no less dedicated. But let's get past the rhetoric. E-cigarettes are the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage.

How Can Doctors Avoid Malpractice Suits? Be Nice
 
07:01
Why do doctors get sued? How can malpractice suits be avoided? It turns out, the answer may be simple. Defensive medicine refers to the idea that doctors are forced to order extra tests, perform extra procedures, or push for more office visits because they think that without them, they're at greater risk for being sued. This is in spite of the fact that studies don't support the notion that this extra care actually does reduce their risk. What might help physicians to get sued less often would be for them to get along better with their patients. Or at least, they could become better communicators. That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage. This was based on a piece Aaron wrote for the NYT.

Vaccines and Herd Immunity
 
04:36
In the last few years the rates of vaccine preventable illness have been on the rise. This isn't just something that's happening in the United States – it's happening throughout the world. Often, these outbreaks begin with unvaccinated people. They spread through them, too. Outbreaks occur because of a breakdown in herd immunity. That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage.

Is sitting bad for you? It turns out, sitting is really, really bad for you. Sitting at your desk could shorten your life. So get up and walk around, OK?

The Healthcare Triage mug is clinically proven to be the best vessel for holding hot drinks. Get yours here: http://dft.ba/-HCTmerch Last week we talked about sleep. We talked about how much the average person needs, and how much they get. We also talked about how you can't just rely on "averages" to determine how much you need. Sleep in a personal thing, and we all need different amounts. But sleep is incredibly important. You have to do it. Not getting enough, or sleep deprivation, is a real, and bizarre thing.

The Doctor Shortage in the US: Is It a Real Thing?
 
06:02
Many people have to wait too long to see a doctor. And it could get worse. If, as many people believe, we have a shortage of doctors in the United States, then it follows that we can fix this only by training and hiring more physicians. As with almost everything in our health care system, though, it's complicated. Some people think there's no shortage at all - just a poor distribution of the doctors we have. That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage. This episode was adapted from a column Aaron wrote for the Upshot.

Those days are over. Too much sun can be terrible for you. Besides the fact that it significantly increases the risk of skin cancer, the sun will age your skin and make you look older, too. Who wants that? Today, we use sunscreen to protect us from the sun. But most of us are doing it wrong. How so? Watch and learn.

Booze Isn't All Bad
 
06:22
While we have discussed the dangerous effects of alcohol abuse and misuse, that doesn't mean it's always bad. Besides being part of many complex and delicious beverages, there are any number of studies which show that alcohol is linked to health benefits. That doesn't mean it's all good news, either, or that the evidence is a slam dunk. There's certainly enough, though, to warrant a thorough review. That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage.

The History of Opioids
 
08:17
Thanks, in part, to the generous support of the NIHCM, this month we are releasing four special episodes on Opioids. We hope you enjoy them. This week's episode: The History of Opioids - We will give a historical overview of people and opioids. We will look at when people first started using opioids, how they've changed over the years, and ways that they've been both amazingly positive as really effective painkillers and devastating to individuals and social orders. We will explore the early accounts of opiate use, addiction, and treatment, and touch on the Opium Wars in China. The evolution from raw opium latex to the powerful drugs derived from opium today traces a clear history of increasing addiction as opioids were available in more and more powerful preparations.
