Also, infectious disease specialist Dr. Stacey Rizza has an update on tuberculosis. March 24 is World TB Day. And, pathologist Dr. Bobbi Pritt has the latest on a new bacterium that causes Lyme disease and how to protect against it.

Myth or Matter-of-Fact: The most restorative, restful sleep usually occurs between 3 and 7 a.m.
