Bad Science Beyond the Western World

Martin Robbins takes 'bad science' and dodgy healthcare to task.

In this talk Martin gives a more global view of homeopathy, quacks abroad and bad science in the developing world. He will cover Homeopaths in Haiti and Africa, AIDS denialism, how alt-med props up the Cuban healthcare system, anti-vaccination movements in Africa and Asia, dodgy bomb-detectors, and a plethora of other stories about quacks amok in the third world.

Martin Robbins is a freelance science writer, podcaster and journalist who blogs for The Guardian about science, pseudoscience and the role of science in politics.
