Technology vs Health

6 November 2012

In this broadcast General Practitioner Dr Hugh Derham and Occupational Therapist Jane Muirhead join Dr Olga Ward and Gerry Gannon to discuss ways in which modern technologies and modern life may be impacting on our health.

They discuss issues including plastic water containers, milk intolerances, electromagnetic radiation, genetically modified crops, organic and biodynamic foods and heavy metals.

Jane Muirhead discusses some potential issues for GPs in setting up their own work environment and demonstrates some very simple stretching and relaxation micro-exercises that can help your body and mind navigate safely through the working day.
