How to identify and see through deceptive and unethical health marketing practices

Health scams come in all shapes and sizes-from the suppression of side-effects from prescription drugs to the unproven benefits of 'traditional' health practices-taking advantage of the human tendency to assume good intentions in others. So how do we avoid being deceived? Professor of Nursing, Bernie Garrett explores real-world examples of medical malpractice, pseudo and deceptive health science, dietary and celebrity health fads, deception in alternative medicine and problems with current healthcare regulation, ending with a simple health-scam detection kit. And he looks at how these practices and ineffective regulations affect our lives.
