I was delighted to turn on my radio this morning and hear the interview with Dr. Barbara Natterson-Horowitz (UCLA) and journalist Kathryn Bowers about their book called "Zoobiquity: What animals can teach us about health and the science of healing" on the Diane Rehm show (NPR). This book describes many diseases that are shared between humans and certain animals. More information on shared diseases can be found on the website for the book.

Props to you Diane Rehm for promoting comparative physiology on your show!
