Health fact or fiction? Every day, it is getting increasingly difficult to separate the
truth from myth as magazines, television, and countless internet articles tout new therapies, diets and health trends as the secret behind a healthier, happier, and longer life. But is the average consumer doomed to be confused and adrift in this sea of conflicting info when deciding how best to live our lives?
Not if health-law professor, writer and debunker-extraordinaire Timothy Caulfield has anything to do with it. Timothy is on a mission to dive deep into the science behind today’s cutting-edge health trends in order to separate the truly good advice from the excess of high-priced placebos currently available.
With the value we place on trends and media information in our culture, Timothy does not underestimate the power they hold. He’ll speak with devoted followers to find out why they swear by these practices, and meet with the practitioners who sell these products and services before setting out to find the cold hard facts that will either disprove or prove them.
