Immunization Facts and Other Health Topics (March 14, 2015)
Dr. Teresa Foster, a family practitioner and osteopath with offices in Woodstock and Boiceville visits the RadioRotary studio to help clarify issues in health and wellness. A family practitioner sees patients of all ages and types—and Dr. Foster even makes house calls. The recent uptick in measles has caused people to take a closer look at immunization. Dr. Foster emphasizes that measles is incredible contagious and one in four persons who contracts the disease ends up in the hospital, so immunization, which does NOT cause autism, is vital. Other issues discussed include the causes of cancer, the need in the U.S. for more health workers of all kinds, and what steps are necessary to produce good health.
