Salt Lake City, Utah – If you've traveled, you've seen the impact of American culture on the world: McDonald's in the oldest cities or movie marquees with the latest Hollywood productions. But science writer Ethan Watters says this isn't the most disturbing effect we're having. America is actually changing the symptoms and the prevalence of mental illness in other cultures. Tuesday, Watters joins Doug to explain why America thinks it should be therapist to the world and the harm we may be causing.
