This week, we take a virtual journey to the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). At the event, NOAA's Oceans and Human Health Initiative unveiled six new studies that offer new insights into how diseases found in dolphins and other marine mammals are similar to humans. In this episode, we talk with NOAA scientists about two of the six studies presented at the meeting. In our first story, we discuss unprecedented contaminant levels found in coastal dolphins in Georgia. In our second story, we look at new research that shows marine exposure to a type of toxic algae may cause epilepsy. (12 minutes)
