Health News Digest: What Scares Us

We discuss the latest in health news. This week, Juliet Jacobs shares an article she read about rat lungworm, which is a rare parasitic infection that she now worries she would get. Meanwhile, Chua Ern Teck opens up about his concern for male-pattern baldness. And Tina Carmillia’s greatest fear is suffering from locked-in syndrome. Are we hypochondriacs, or are our medical concerns legitimate? You tell us!
