As founder of the Lg Nobel awards, Marc Abrahams explores the world's most
improbable research.  In this thought-provoking (and occasionally side-splitting)
talk, he tells stories of 
truly weird science - and thus the case that silliness is
critical to boosting public interest in science.

Is the Obesity Crisis Hiding a Bigger Problem? (15:58)
As a young surgeonPeter Attia felt contempt for a patient with diabetes.  She
was overweight, he thought, and thus responsible for the fact that she needed a

how assumptions may be leading us to wage the wrong medical war.

Alzheimer's doesn't have to be your brain's destiny, says neuroscientist and
author of "Still Alice," Lisa Genova. She shares the latest science investigating
the disease — and some promising research on what each of us can do to build
an Alzheimer's-resistant brain.
