We’ve all heard it: red wine is good for your heart. It was even on 60 Minutes! But how strong is the science behind this claim? And will drinking a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc make Dr. Labos more interesting to the women around him?
Is milk a creamy health elixir or a dangerous brew of bacteria? Is there both rhyme and reason behind pasteurization or does it destroy milk’s dairy goodness? In an attempt to answer the question, Jonathan and Dr. Labos battle lactose intolerance and osteoporosis, deliver a history lesson on Louis Pasteur, and get tangled up in brucellosis. Do you have a brain abscess? Stop listening now and go see a doctor. Take a picture of the pus but don’t send it to us.

E-cigarettes are all the rage these days, and their manufacturers are claiming all kinds of things: they help you quit smoking, they’re healthier, they’ll enhance your sex life (OK, maybe not the last one). Is “vaping” better than smoking? Jonathan Jarry and Dr. Christopher Labos look at the body of evidence on e-cigarettes. Their addictive discussion is laced with lines from The Lion King, quotes from Shakespeare, and obscure phonological references.

The guy is having such a blast, he decided to film himself recording drums for the episode 3 jingle.
You’ll only get to hear the full jingle when the episode comes out in a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, you can binge listen on episodes 1, 2, and our bonus appearance on CJAD radio.
