    Think of all the conversations every generation has had — to vaccinate or not, what makes us happy, what foods are bad for you, and more. We talk about these things over and over again but we never take the time to look back to see what previous generations have said or done.

    On this episode, we’re seeking out historic Déjà vu moments. We dug around in our archives for stories that bring perspective to big health and science topics, then and now.
