Are We Alone – Skeptic Check: Playing Doctor

by Gary Niederhoff on July 14, 2010

A new herbal supplements is on the shelf, and it claims to improve memory. Should you take it? It’s not easy to sort through the firehose of health and nutrition advice that comes at us daily. Find out how to get healthy about health advice, plus hear the story of Bernarr Macfadden, the eccentric who kicked off America’s fitness craze; he believed that eating less was good for you, but he didn’t believe germ theory.

Plus, our Hollywood skeptic spills his guts and other entrails for a phony class for nurses and Phil Plait gives us the latest lapse in critically-thinking brains.

It’s Skeptic Check… but don’t take our word for it.

Listen to individual segments here:
Part 1 – Phil Plait
Part 2 – Mark Adams
Part 3 – Jim Underdown
Part 4 – Steven Novella
