Can we trust health advice?


  • 09/02/2016
Every day, we face a number of decisions about how to maintain a healthy life. What foods should we eat? How often should we exercise? How much alcohol is safe to consume? From health professionals to the government, who should we turn to for health and wellbeing advice and can we really trust what they say?

Join us at The Spectator’s annual health debate, with an expert panel chaired by Andrew Neil, organised with the Institute of Economic Affairs.
