Ep 141: Xand Van Tulleken – World’s Worst Diet

Open wide and prepare to swallow some truly terrible ideas as we uncover the wild and bizarre history of dieting this week.  We’re joined by the globe-trotting, myth-busting, BAFTA-nominated doctor and TV presenter Xand Van Tulleken who is there to fact-check us on our science and quackery.

As usual we ping from the ancient world to the modern as we discover the $10,000 bottle of water it’s too dangerous to drink, a Looney Toon who exists solely on air and sunlight and why you should never eat a tapeworm in Tonga.
