Description

Eminent research scientist Mike Berridge unpacks the myths around some of the most popular health issues, including cancer, vaccination, sugar consumption, and water fluoridation.  This is not just a clear and current exposition of public health matters that are often mired in misinformation: it is also a heartfelt plea to place robust and impartial science at the heart of our policy decisions and our reporting.
