What your doctor won’t disclose by Leana Wen

Taken from video description below

Wouldn’t you want to know if your doctor was a paid spokesman for a drug company? Or held personal beliefs incompatible with the treatment you want? Right now, in the US at least, your doctor simply doesn’t have to tell you about that. And when physician Leana Wen asked her fellow doctors to open up, the reaction she got was … unsettling.

Should Science Filmmakers Tell the Truth? by Rob Nelson Films

What is more important: making what people want to watch, or telling truthful and factual science? It seems that not all the big science channels think the same on this subject. I ask the question, I present some recent shows on TV, and I want to know what you think? Where do you draw the line and what is too far? Is there a solution? The problem has been on my mind for awhile and I don’t know if there is even an answer. The problem either lies with the consumer or it lies with the producers/networks. Maybe it’s really a problem with the way we get ratings. I don’t know.

The coming crisis in antibiotics by Ramanan Laxminarayan

Taken directly from description

Antibiotic drugs save lives. But we simply use them too much — and often for non-lifesaving purposes, like treating the flu and even raising cheaper chickens. The result, says researcher Ramanan Laxminarayan, is that the drugs will stop working for everyone, as the bacteria they target grow more and more resistant. He calls on all of us (patients and doctors alike) to think of antibiotics — and their ongoing effectiveness — as a finite resource, and to think twice before we tap into it. It’s a sobering look at how global medical trends can strike home.
