From surreptitious cancers to dreaded ailments of the heart, lungs, and nervous system, the appearance of disease is invariably frightening and difficult to comprehend. Even so, serious illnesses are a focus of intense public and academic curiosity, and—as the continuing growth of the health care industry suggests—many believe that the utmost frontier in 21st-century science is not Mars but medicine. This series looks at the causes, symptoms, health impact, and treatment of ten major diseases or disorders: breast cancer, Parkinson’s disease, coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction, asthma, cervical cancer, colon and rectal cancer, male infertility, female infertility, and audio processing disorder. Case studies, expert commentary, and eye-catching graphics make each episode ideal for group discussion settings as well as individual study. Contains surgical scenes of a graphic nature. Portions with English subtitles, 10-part series, 25 minutes each.
