Woman explains what it's like to be in a coma

It's insane. It's bizarre. I was in a coma but was completely detached from it. I heard pretty much everything everyone around me was saying. It was like a continuous dream for two weeks. I remember thinking I was in Alaska but it was actually nurses putting ice packs on me.

It's been a highly controversial area for a number of years but in a report in the British Medical Journal published on Thursday, medics say that although the risk is low, there is a link.

The study was carried out on American women and is said to be significant. Two of the most commonly prescribed drugs, fluoxetine and paroxetine both showed connections with heart and skull formation.

Dr Hilary Jones joins us to tell us more about the risks and what pregnant women who are taking anti-depressants should do.

Doctors told to change way they detect cancer

For every patient I diagnose with cancer, I have hundreds who haven't got cancer. What I'm hoping this will do, is that I'll be able to say 'this is why we don't think you have cancer'.
