A recent poll asked Americans a seemingly simple question: Has the national health care law been repealed? Our hosts, April Fulton and Rebecca Davis, were surprised to find out how almost half of people answered.

On this week's show, we discuss this unlikely statistic, plus health care woes from Tennessee and Pennsylvania. And we bring you two stories of exercise improving the health of seniors - their muscles and their minds.

Later, blog host Scott Hensley drops by with news about an exciting (and potentially expensive) experimental cystic fibrosis drug, as well as thoughts from Robert Beall, head of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which has helped with its development.

Plus, we hear a conversation with author Claire Dederer about her search for perfection — through yoga.

If your search for perfection involves our podcast, you can listen here or download to listen on the go. To subscribe to the Your Health podcast click here.
