Health News Digest: Read the Fine Print

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.
