How Far Can We Push the Human Body? - with Dr Rohin Francis
Human bodies are remarkably resilient and capable of incredible feats in the most inhospitable of environments. Modern medicine has blurred the lines between life and death, and is showing no signs of stopping. Rohin explores how humans are pushing their bodies further than ever before, in sickness and in health. Dr Rohin Francis is a cardiologist in the UK. He trained in London and Cambridge and he is currently undertaking a PhD at University College London. He makes YouTube videos concentrating on topics that don't get covered elsewhere like offbeat science, understanding why modern medicine doesn't always work, or forgotten chapters of history. This talk was recorded on 26 January 2021.
