Brain Tumors: Myths vs. Facts

There’s a lot of fear surrounding the topic of brain tumors – much of it due to widespread myths and misinformation linking brain tumors to everything from cell phones to sweeteners. May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month, and a good time to separate facts from myths.

Host: Jonathan Fialkow, M.D. [1], chief population health officer with Baptist Health, welcomes Michael McDermott, M.D [2]. to the podcast to offer his substantial expertise on the topic.  Dr. McDermott is a neurosurgeon and chief medical executive at Baptist Health’s Miami Neuroscience Institute  [3]and is considered the number-one expert in the world on meningiomas, the most common primary brain tumors in adults.
