  • What if your doctor is a deepfake? | Health Wealth, Ep 43

    20 MAG 2024 · There is no stopping fake news. And given recent advances in artificial intelligence software, spotting fake news is also becoming increasingly difficult. Last month, a deep fake video of noted cardiologist Dr Naresh Trehan advised viewers to take a particular medicine and was viewed by thousands. The consequences of believing fake news on health are far greater than falling for morphed images of actors and sportspersons. It can lead to serious illness, injury, and even death. In this episode, we explore the world of digital medical misinformation with Sudipta Sengupta, founder & CEO of The Healthy Indian Project. As part of WHO's vaccine safety net and working with fact checkers daily, Sengupta is not only aware of why fake content is generated but also has simple solutions for how we can avoid becoming victims of a fast-growing health infodemic. Corrigendum: Sudipta Sengupta is erroneously introduced as a doctor. He is Mr. Sudipta Sengupta, founder and CEO, the Healthy Indian Project.

  • Can plastic surgery be empowering? | Health Wealth, Ep 38

    15 APR 2024 · This is the age of confused feelings and perceptions over how are bodies look and are meant to look. This is also the age when Rs 40,000 can fetch you a new nose. Affordable plastic surgery has become a surgeon's worst nightmare today. How do they pick between perfection and reality; profit and morality? What do they say to a teen who fantasises about lips just like Suhana Khan? For Dr Amit Gupta, founder and director of Divine Aesthetics, being a plastic surgeon is to have the skills of a sculptor--to be able to look at a human and forsee what the final result will be like. This allows him to mindfully pick the right patient for the right surgery. Plastic surgery is not just a journey of physical procedure anymore, it is an emotional one. In this episode, Dr Gupta lays bare every single one these emotions and shares some heart-warming stories of how a simple surgery has saved lives, improved confidence, and even helped erase some horrific invisible scars from the past. Given the mushrooming of plastic surgery clinics across India, this episode is also an important guide on the medical skills that must be demanded for safe and healthy procedures.

    18 MAR 2024 · Some children draw pictures of mountains with gushing streams and colourful rainbows. Some, draw their families and friends.

What determines how a young child internalises the world around them?
