Segment 1 – Treating Head Lice
Head lice—just hearing the words can cause many of us to feel the need to scratch. But as viewers will see in this segment there is much research going on involving head lice. Head lice can become resistant to over the counter products and continue to plague their victims. This can lead to a debilitating stigma for both the children who have head lice…and their families. But there are new treatments that can destroy even the persistent head lice.
Segment 2 – Exploring Food Allergies
Food allergies are among the most mysterious conditions on the planet. They can be both very common and mild—or they can be severe and in some cases life-threatening. But new discoveries have given researchers the ability in some cases to help people better know whether they have a mild allergy or one that is much more severe. In this segment we focus on peanut allergies. New molecular tests can analyze which proteins are causing the reaction—if it’s one protein then the allergy is severe and all precautions need to be taken.
