Medical advances have saved so many lives, whether it is through vaccines to prevent infectious diseases or therapies to treat cancer. 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.
