    Don't show emotion. To cry is to show weakness. Suppress your anger to prove your manhood. These are the kinds of messages sent by society to boys and young men. As a result, many are left with no healthy outlet for their emotions, which causes those emotions to build up over the course of years and years. But “anger is like a ticking time bomb,” says Joseph Warren. It's bound to come out at some point, and when it does, it often does so in uncontrolled and damaging ways. Having experienced this himself, Warren has worked his way through a troubled childhood and past, and come out on the other side. And now, he's dedicated his life to helping other men do the same.

This causes muscle atrophy all across the body, which can eventually cause suffocation and even death.    Listen now to learn about: The importance of diagnosing neurodegenerative diseases early. What happens to victims of ALS. What the typical onset age for ALS is. How ALS progresses in victims.  We don't know much about ALS and how to treat it. Indu Navar is dedicated to facilitating more investigation into this condition so that doctors can more effectively treat it. This episode explores how advocacy and citizen research plays an important role in solving ALS and conditions like it.

    Scientists are using the power of mathematics to take action against cancer. These unique analytical methods have contributed to an exciting new approach to cancer investigation and treatment. Joining us on this episode is Dr. Alexander (Sandy) Anderson, Ph.D. Dr. Anderson is the Chair of Integrated Mathematical Oncology at Moffitt Cancer Center. Dr. Anderson researches the mathematical modeling of cancer in order to develop eco-evolutionary therapies that can control cancer – rather than eradicate it.  Listen in to learn about: The “dialogue” between a growing tumor and its changing environment. How scientists are using mathematics to understand complex biological phenomena. What it takes to construct mathematical models that translate to cancer treatment strategies.

    How can mathematical models help us better understand how we can combat the evolution of diseases? By understanding how the development progresses, we may be able to alleviate the burden of disease on humankind. Press play to learn: How a single vaccine could protect against all strains of influenza Why a universal vaccine could be effective Possible roadblocks in developing a universal vaccine Sunetra Gupta, a Professor of Theoretical Epidemiology at the University of Oxford, shares her work developing treatments to keep up with the development of various diseases and illnesses. Developing vaccines for various therapeutic applications has been a standard solution to combat illness in a specific period. However, as viruses and other "bugs" evolve, vaccines can become ineffective over time. However, by identifying commonalities between various strains of a virus, developing a more applicable treatment may be possible. For example, if viruses were viewed as wearing different clothing outfits over evolutions, identifying a common item of clothing throughout iterations can be incredibly valuable.
