However, these victories are becoming eclipsed by the rise of alternative views in healthcare. Azrul Mohd Khalib, CEO of the Galen Centre for Health & Social Policy, is joined by Dr Ahmad Firdaus bin Mohd Haris, President of Medical Mythbusters Malaysia, to talk about pseudoscientific claims and quack therapies – and the threat to public health.
