Mayo Clinic Radio: Healthy-Aging Strategies/Hazardous Dietary Supplements/FDA Reclassification of Transvaginal Mesh Devices

January 4, 2016

We can spend much of our lives looking forward to our "golden years" ... but when we get there, we may be greeted by aches, pains and chronic illness. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, oncologist and palliative care specialist Dr. Edward Creagan talks about how you can stack the odds of aging with health in your favor. Dr. Creagan is author of Mayo Clinic on Healthy Aging: How to Find Happiness and Vitality for a Lifetime, and posts regularly on the Mayo Clinic Healthy Aging blogAlso on the program, Dr. Brent Bauer, director of the Mayo Clinic Complementary and Integrative Medicine Program, discusses a recent study of the risks associated with some dietary supplements. And, urologist and surgeon Dr. Daniel Elliott explains why the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently changed the medical device classification for transvaginal mesh used to repair pelvic organ prolapse (POP).

Myth or Matter-of-Fact: A family history of a disease doesn't necessarily mean you'll get that disease. In other words, your genes aren't your destiny.

Listen to the program at 9:05 a.m. CT, Saturday, January 9.
