On this week's show Dr Shane, Dr Lauren and Dr Krystal unpack the art of flying business class, the increased likelihood of males developing intellectual disabilities (and what is it that protects women?), how hookworms affect immunity and how genetic traits are stacked in GM foods. Associate Professor Megan Munsie from Stem Cells Australia joins the show to update us on the capabilities and ethics of stem cell research and Dr Tanya Hill from Scienceworks' Planetarium discusses their after-dark astronomy classes and upcoming exhibition 'Rescue'. All this and more (about Dr Lauren's junket to the USA) on yet another packed show.
