The physician who’s sick of scientific misinformation is coming to Oz to rant about the dangers in spreading faux science
Prepare yourself to be informed – in a comical way – of the dangers found in the modern trend of spreading scientific misinformation.
Physician, academic and bestselling author Ben Goldacre will be coming to Sydney on his first Australian/New Zealand tour in September, ready with fighting talk for anyone using so-called science on the internet.
The world wide web has become a platform for the promotion of medical misinformation and Dr Goldacre wants to set the record straight on topics like the safety of meat and fraudulent pharmaceutical firms. He's hoping to recalibrate our bullshit metres.
