Dr Paul Offit, Professor of Vaccinology - is modern medicine truly the answer?

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:10 pm on 6 July 2020

Conventional wisdom is not always wise. Fevers can be good for you. Vitamin C does not help a cold.  Icing a sprained ankle is not the best idea. Dr Paul Offit is a professor of vaccinology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and co-inventor of the rotavirus vaccine. He takes aim at some generally accepted medical practices in his book, Overkill When Modern Medicine Goes Too Far.
