Decades ago, people got their health information from their doctors. Today, information is much more available (thanks, internet). So much so that we're bombarded by it: lose weight forever with this one simple trick; here's the cleanse that will cure your bloat; don't lie awake in bed at night, take this supplement, cure insomnia. Many of these tips, tricks, cures and secrets are misleading and inaccurate, spread by celebrities and laypeople alike.
Timothy Caulfield has spent most of his career trying to find out if there's any evidence behind these wellness trends. He joins us on "Take Care" to dispel some myths and get to the root of the problem. Caulfield is a researcher, author and professor of health law and science policy at the University of Alberta. He's host of the show "A User's Guide to Cheating Death," which is available on Netflix.
