Astronaut Health

As you can tell from my previous post about my trip to NASA, I have a keen interest in spaceflight and aerospace medicine. About seven years ago, I came upon a report that prolonged exposure to microgravity could result in visual changes. Of course, the only people who experience prolonged microgravity exposure are astronauts who tend to be in excellent health. I wrote a commentary about this new health problem in my book, "Bullets and Brains."

Recently, I've had the opportunity to update a number of the chapters in "Bullets and Brains" on ReachMD. Here's an update on Spaceflight Associated Neuro-Ocular Syndrome. It's an audio podcast that runs about five minutes. Please share your feedback in the comments section! Thank you.
