I'm a doctor, write books, make radio documentaries, and write a weekly column in the Guardian newspaper. My work unpicks dodgy scientific claims from pharmaceutical companies, government reports, quacks, PR people, and journalists. This is a good way to make enemies, and ensure they have a platform!
I think unpicking bad science is the best way to explain good science.
My last book "Bad Science" was about all these themes, but mostly quacks and journalists.
My next book "The Drug Pushers" is about bad behaviour the pharmaceutical industry.
I currently work as an academic in epidemiology.
I'm passionate about
Evidence based medicine.
