Winter means snow, cuddly rom-coms...and brutal head colds. Nothing a little Z-Pak won’t fix...WRONG. That’s exactly what the superbugs want you to do. Our antibiotic misuse is contributing to the global rise of an unseen, deadly force: antibiotic-resistant superbugs. We hear from a mother and daughter with direct experience with these terrifying new strains of bacteria. Dr. Abdul El-Sayed then explains how the pharmaceutical industry’s broken incentives and the government’s failure to change them have left us without the new antibiotics we need to take them on—putting us behind in the arms-race against these highly-evolved killers.

We almost eradicated measles in the U.S., but anti-vaxxers had to go and ruin it for everyone. WTF?

We meet the people affected, like Ethan Lindenberger, an 18-year-old who defied his anti-vax mom to get vaccinated.

Traditional science-based medicine has some gaps—but what happens when grifters and scammers take advantage? Dr. Abdul El-Sayed leads us inside the underbelly of the cult of wellness. Dr. Jen Gunter, Twitter’s “Resident Gynecologist,” helps us understand modern quackery—and how we can apply scientific principles to make our best health decisions.
From celebrities who hate vaccines to politicians who hate Obamacare - the mistrust, fake news, sensationalism, and social media firestorms that we see every day in politics and the media are distracting us from what really matters for our health. In America Dissected, a new podcast hosted by Abdul El-Sayed, doctor and former Detroit Health Director, we'll go beyond the headlines to dissect America’s major health problems, what connects them, and what we all can do to solve them.

idk why if Carolyn believes in science, she chooses to support a company that spreads lies and misinformation. there are so many reputable beauty products out there from better companies. also there's so many great naturopaths out there who like, go to school and take continuing Ed classes on this stuff. there's just no excuse to buy from goop if you think you're a smart person lol
