Wellness Wednesday: Flu, Alcohol and Heart Health, Vitamin D

11 am If this is the worst flu season you remember, you’re not dreaming. Over five times as many Ohioans have been hospitalized for the flu this year, compared to last. This hour we'll get an update on Ohio’s flu outbreak-- why it’s so bad, and when we can expect relief. Plus, the latest research on super-nutrient vitamin D, and a look at the link between binge drinking and heart arrhythmia.
