We bring the latest in health news. This week, Tee Shiao Eek and Juliet Jacobs join Tina Carmillia to discuss home births and doulas, following the death of a baby born in an unassisted birth in Johor. They read the nutrition labels of several food products, including Milo, to see what all the fuss is about; and finally they discuss whether they would take a blood test that could identify Alzheimer's disease.
