The Health Ministry has recently urged the public to stop using e-cigarettes and vaping devices, until the findings of a study on the risks are announced in a few months. While health professionals remain divided over the risks of e-cigarettes, various agencies have argued for more regulation of the vape industry in Malaysia, which is said to be the second largest after the United States. BFM explores the benefits and the perils of vaping.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence's Professor Mark Baker said 10 million antibiotic prescriptions a year in England were inappropriate. There is universal consensus that the very basis of modern medicine is under threat due to rising numbers of infections that are resistant to drugs. Dr. George Lee returns to discuss this piece of news alongside Dr. Ashok Philip.

In recent years, public comments have warned about the increasing workload that Malaysian doctors have to grapple with. When an anesthesiologist died in a car accident while driving home from hospital duty, her death was associated with fatigue from work. On the other hand, the medical faculty has also raised concerns that Malaysia is training too many doctors. How do we concile these contradictory observations? And more importantly, are we overworking our doctors? The former Director-General of Ministry of Health, Tan Sri Ismail Merican, and President of the Malaysian Medical Association, Dr Ashok Philip, shed light on the issue.
