What does the body of evidence have to say on the topic of dementia or, to use a more recent term, major cognitive disorder? Plus: what (little) we know about long COVID, and we go over arguments for and against the no-vax tax that was recently debated in Quebec.


Block 1:

(3:04) Dementia: types of memory


Block 2:

(11:53) Dementia: Alzheimer’s, ApoE, vascular dementia, Lewy body disease, frontotemporal dementia, how to screen for and diagnose dementia, treatments, vitamin E, ginkgo, Aduhelm, preventative measures


Block 3:

(32:32) Long COVID: prevalence, symptoms, scientific challenges, hypotheses, vaccination


Block 4:

(49:35) No-vax tax debate
