We begin with a study published in Lancet that indicates that quitting smoking can help your survival even if you get diagnosed with lung cancer. The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre lead the study. Meanwhile, research in the U.S. shows that multiple emerging risk factors for heart disease in women must be looked at in order to make early diagnoses and treatment happen. Risk factors include pregnancy complications, depression, breast cancer among others that will be discussed on today’s show. And, our panel discusses the latest ways in which AI are proving useful in the healthcare system.
Libby Znaimer is joined by Tasha Kheiriddin, A Canadian public affairs commentator, and Julia Malott, a transgender individual from Toronto who is concerned about the increasing divisiveness around gender identity and ideology in Canada.
Nation wide protests from organizations supported by groups like Hands Off My Kids and Parents Rights Coalition of Canada are taking place today with messages like #1MillionMarch4Canada circulating widely on social media. They are demonstrating against the gender policies at schools and, here in Toronto, they are organizing at Queens Park to voice their concerns. But, one of the questions we have is: when did this all become front and centre of the culture wars?
Libby Znaimer is now joined by Maria Popova, Associate Professor of Political Science and Jean Monnet Chair at McGill University.
