"One of the leading health threats to human is cancer. However, wild animals rarely get this disease. Why are humans more at risk of developing cancer? When humans became bipedal in Africa, they also developed bigger brains. It seems this created the ideal conditions for cancer cell growth. This episode discusses how humans should deal with the battle against cancer within the context of the evolutionary process"--Container.

  • This program investigates the Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male, a medical experiment conducted in Alabama from 1932-1972 in which Afro-American men believed they were receiving free treatment for syphilis, but were given worthless medicines by government physicians.
(Producer) This program investigates the Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male. African American men in Macon County, Ala. believed they were receiving free treatment for syphilis; they were, instead, given medicines that were worthless against the disease. The experiment continued from 1932 until 1972 and was periodically written up in mainstream medical journals. The program outlines the history of the study, offers testimony from survivors and from doctors who administered it, and looks at what many consider the perversion of medical ethics and the doctor/patient relationship involved in carrying out such an experiment.

"According to the World Health Organization, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the world. Why do people get heart disease and how can we prevent it? This program turns to evolution for answers. For example, by standing upright, the burden on the heart to send blood around the entire body was increased, and in exchange for our larger brain, the seeds of heart attacks were planted"--Container.

"The human brain has undergone dramatic evolutionary advances. Today, however, many people suffer from strokes. The truth is, humans suffer from strokes because brain size increased too rapidly during the course of human evolution. The blood supply to our brains increased threefold during the last 2.5 million years, but the walls of our blood vessels didn't adjust to this change and remain fragile"--Container.

Arman is 33 and ready to make a change, starting with a run in the park. When he literally bumps into Amélie--slightly cynical but nevertheless lovely--on the jogging path, he's dead-set on making a connection with her. As a bit of contrived fate brings them together, Arman's best friend Benjamin suffers an unexpected stroke, relegating him to the hospital for weeks where he falls for his doting young physical therapist. Over the course of two autumns and three winters, Arman, Amélie and Benjamin share the incidental moments, unexpected accidents, unconventional love stories and unforgettable memories that will define who they are.
