Worst Foot Forward

Nov 11, 2019

Open wide and prepare to swallow some truly terrible ideas as we uncover the wild and bizarre history of dieting this week.  We're joined by the globe-trotting, myth-busting, BAFTA-nominated doctor and TV presenter Xand Van Tulleken who is there to fact-check us on our science and quackery.

As usual we ping from the ancient world to the modern as we discover the $10,000 bottle of water it's too dangerous to drink, a Looney Toon who exists solely on air and sunlight and why you should never eat a tapeworm in Tonga.
