Ben Goldacre Tells it Like it Is

Posted March 15, 2009

Ben Goldacre, author of the book and blog Bad Science, discusses his tussle with the British radio station who broadcast the ignorant scaremongering of Jeni Barnett, the importance of a science-based approach to medicine, and the media’s role in public perception of these issues.

In less than 5 minutes, Goldacre makes a very convincing argument by laying out the simple truths about this situation and the consequences of irresponsible reporting.

People should listen to him.
