Health News Digest: 13 Reasons Why

We discuss the latest in health news. First, Ern Teck gives us an insight into his experience getting treatment for his shoulder injury. Then, caffeine-dependent Juliet wonders how much coffee is too much, after an American teen died from drinking too much caffeine too quickly. Meanwhile, Tina asks if 13 Reasons Why raises awareness about teenage suicide, or glamorises it.
