We talk to leading science and medical reporter Amina Manzoor at the largest Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter (DN). Amina Manzoor fights the good fight in the media to spread an objective and fair view on health myths, alternative “medicine” and she reports on new scientific studies in a popular way. And it works! The readers are interacting and interested!
