On this week’s episode Jelena and Andras interviews British biochemist, nutritionist, blogger, author and public speaker Pixie Turner, to talk about the science-based approach to healthy eating, dietary and lifestyle choices and how she turned from a person suffering from orthorexia to a public figure educating people into following the science instead of falling for popular, but absolutely useless diets.
This week we are talking about well known quack and discredited doctor Andrew Wakefield and his campaign promoting ‘Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe’, a pseudo-documentary that promotes the false idea of vaccines causing autism and then many other things.

“You look at science (or at least talk of it) as some sort of demoralising invention of man, something apart from real life, and which must be cautiously guarded and kept separate from everyday existence. But science and everyday life cannot and should not be separated.” /Rosalind Franklin, English chemist and X-ray christallographer/
