ADHD: Are we overmedicating our kids?

Dr Joseph Beiderman is the psychiatrist known as the “father” of ADHD. For 30 years, he’s led the Ritalin revolution, responsible for dosing up millions of children. 60,000 kids in Australia alone are on powerful drugs to control their behaviour. Have our children been overprescribed and overmedicated? Doctor John D’Arcy investigates.

Antibiotic Resistance

Because of antibiotics, half a century ago we thought we had beaten the bugs. Not so! Today, the misuse and overuse of these life-saving medicines is contributing to one of the greatest threats to human health. Every time we use antibiotics incorrectly or inappropriately we contribute to the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Spread knowledge, not infections. This means always practicing good hygiene, talking to your health professional about antibiotic resistance, and encouraging those around you to become resistance fighters too.

Heart Disease is the biggest killer of Women

Knowing the symptoms of heart attack may just save your life. In this video Dr John and the panel discuss how the symptoms of heart attack in women can be different to men. For women this may include pain and pressure in the chest, neck, arm, jaw, shortness of breath, dizziness and a cold sweat.

Women don’t always feel the classic chest pain men often feel. Instead women may feel breathless, and have nausea, back pain, tightness or discomfort in the arms and a general feeling of being unwell.

Women often wait too long to seek help because they think they are not at risk of heart attack. As we age it is important to speak to your GP and get a heart health assessment.
