Battling Bad Science (The Video)

Here’s doctor and epidemiologist Ben Goldacre making the case (in a TED talk) for real science — the kind that “critically appraises the evidence for someone else’s position” — and against “crazy, wacky” newspaper headlines, for instance, the ones that say coffee both prevents and causes cancer. (There’s also a funny aside about a dead cat called Hettie and her medical credentials.)
