Aspirin, holiday sickness, ADHD

Mark Porter investigates if the benefits of taking aspirin to prevent disease outweigh the risks, the difficulty for adults to get a diagnosis of ADHD, and holiday illnesses.

Aspirin is over 100 years old, but doctors still can't agree whether the benefits of taking it to prevent heart conditions or cancer outweigh the risks.Dr Mark Porter investigates.

Plus ADHD - not in children, but ADULTS - why is it so hard for grown-ups to get a diagnosis.
