42 Amazing Maps by Hank Green

Taken from video description

The map, as an innovation, is extremely important. Simply constructing a useful representation of our world onto a piece of paper (or clay or vellum or whatever) vastly increased the capabilities of humankind. But we continue to add and alter this medium, in ways that allow for greater understanding of our world and even of ourselves.

So in this video I talk about 42 maps that are really amazing.

Number Needed to Treat – Number Needed to Harm: Treatments Don’t Work Like You Think They Work – Treatments Can Hurt You

Taken from description

One of the problems with the way we discuss health interventions is that we see them in black and white. Something is either good for you or bad for you. Things are rarely that simple, though. Moreover, there’s “good for you” and “GOOD FOR YOU”. How do you tell the difference? Watch and learn.

Almost all of the data for this came from the amazing website TheNNT (http://thennt.com). You can go there to see those and more.

Additionally, Aaron’s new book is out! Please consider buying a copy. He’d really appreciate it!http://dontputthatinthere.com/#buy_th…

Last week, we discussed the NNT, or number needed to treat. I’m sure it made a lot of you upset to realize that many therapies you’ve been sold as “awesome” were, in fact, somewhat incremental with respect to benefits. But another problem is that a lot of those therapies are anything but benign. They come not only with costs, but also with side effects or problems.

We can quantify harms, too. Watch and learn about NNH!

Healthcare in Singapore

Taken from the video description

Singapore is a small city-state that likely isn’t as well known to you as some of the other countries we’ve discussed before. But they’ve got one of the most fascinating health care systems around. It’s cheap, it’s pretty much universal, and it achieves some amazingly strong outcomes. It’s also much different in structure than other systems we’ve covered before. Watch and learn – you’ll be glad you did.

If you want to learn more, there’s pretty much only one book you need to read. It’s short, it’s awesome, and it’s still free in Kindle format. It’s called Affordable Excellence: The Singapore Health System, and you can get a copy here:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00C…

Healthcare in England

Taken directly from the video description

We’ve done the US, Canada, and France. None of them are really socialized healthcare systems. To get at that, we need to go look at a system like that of the UK. More specifically, we’re going to talk about England’s National Health Service. See what a real “government run” system looks like, how it compares to yours, and what’s good (and not so good) about it.

The Healthcare System of France

Copy from the video description below

We’ve covered the United States and Canada. today, we cross the Atlantic to discuss the healthcare System in France. Their system is a combination of universal social insurance with some optional private overlays. It’s expensive (relative to most), but it’s arguably the best in the world. Watch and learn why.

What is a True Whole Grain? by Andrew Weil, M.D.

 

Taken from video description

Don’t be fooled by “whole-grain” products such as whole wheat flour (or bread made from it), which have a glycemic index nearly as high as that of refined flour. Grains that have been pulverized into flour, whether “whole” or not, have a significantly expanded starchy surface area available to digestive enzymes, and cause blood sugar levels to spike dramatically. A serving of true whole grains – embellished or plain – makes a healthy side for almost any meal, but they are also wonderful in soups, stews, salads and stuffings.

Whole grains – full of protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals and low-glycemic carbohydrates – are an important part of the Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid.
