Zoobiquity - The Astonishing Connection Between Human and Animal Health
October 20, 2014
Hosted by Pamela Hill
Have you ever wanted to know if there were connections between human and animal health? Be sure to listen to today’s show as co-authors Barbara Natterson-Horowitz, M.D. and Kathryn Bowers discuss their findings on the astonishing connections we share with animals. Inspired by an eye-opening consultation at the Los Angeles Zoo, which revealed that a monkey experienced the same symptoms of heart failure as her human patients, cardiologist Natterson-Horowitz embarked upon a project that would reshape how she practiced medicine. She began informally researching every affliction that she encountered in humans to learn whether it happened with animals, too. Natterson-Horowitz and science writer Kathryn Bowers have dubbed this pan-species approach to medicine zoobiquity. Join us as they present a revelatory understanding of what animals can teach us about the human body and mind, exploring how animal and human commonality can be used to diagnose, treat, and heal patients of all species.
