Acetaminophen, Tylenol's active ingredient, is a well-known headache reliever, but a new study found it may also blunt emotional pain--and pleasure. We'll discuss how America's most popular drug reduces fevers, joy and sorrow, and why it matters.
Plus, we'll learn about the sometimes dangerous consequences of health care's transition from analog to digital, and discuss the importance of peer-to-peer counseling in treating postpartum depression.
