Since 2003 Dr Ben Goldacre has been exposing dodgy medical data in his popular Guardian column. In this eye-opening book he takes on the MMR hoax and misleading cosmetics ads; acupuncture and homeopathy; vitamins and mankinds vexed relationship with all manner of toxins. Along the way; the self-confessed Johnny Ball cum Witchfinder General performs a successful detox on a Barbie doll; sees his dead cat become a certified nutritionist and probes the supposed medical qualifications of Dr Gillian McKeith. Full spleen and satire; Ben Goldacre takes us on a hilarious; invigorating and ultimately alarming journey through the bad science we are fed daily by hacks and quacks.
I Think You will Find Its a Bit More Complicated Than That
In Bad Science; Ben Goldacre hilariously exposed the tricks that quacks and journalists use to distort science. In Bad Pharma; he put the $600 billion global pharmaceutical industry under the microscope. Now the pick of the journalism by one of our wittiiest; most indignant and most fearless commentators on the worlds of medicine and science is collected in one volume.
