Science reveals that irrational, inexplicable teenage mood swings aren't only normal, they're helpful and beneficial - even if they are painful for parents and teens alike. Teenagers may be sulky and surly one moment, exuberant and ecstatic the next. And it's more than hormones that brings on these extreme teen mood swings, it's their developing brains that are also to blame. Teens are at a cerebral crossroads; their brains driving new ways of thinking and feeling, and how teens learn to manage their moods can either empower or derail them for the rest of their lives.

Teens are re-writing the rules of sex but while their bodies suddenly become adult, they're not necessarily in sync with their chief sex organ - the teen brain. Whether they're having sex or not, whether their parents like it or not, teenagers are sexual beings. Today's teens are having sex earlier, clocking up more partners and are more sexually adventurous than ever. It all starts with puberty, the human sexuality switch, but it's the teen brain that drives this change, influencing teen sex lives in surprising ways.

Vicky's fear of breast cancer is so acute, she's had a double mastectomy to reduce her chances; confirmed smoker Darius finds out just what the poisonous chemicals are doing to every organ and tissue in his body; and John makes good use of a pile of wooden building blocks to explain just what happens when a cell becomes cancerous.

How far would you go to win at your favourite sport? Would you take anything that's not on the banned list? Or would you refuse even a simple supplement? In this sweaty episode, John Marsden asks what counts as cheating today. For instance - he tests claims that caffeine improves stamina by about 5% (which is plenty enough to make the difference between fourth and gold) and asks if it's true, how come caffeine was left off the banned list for the Athens Olympics?
