Ben Goldacre : Bad Pharma @ Broadway Cinema
Broadway Cinema is pleased to welcome award-winning writer, broadcaster, and medical doctor Ben Goldacre to Broadway. He will talk about his new book 'Bad Pharma', which turns a gimlet eye on the claims of the pharmaceutical industry.
Ben Goldacre specialises in unpicking scientific claims made by scaremongering journalists, government reports, pharmaceutical corporations, PR companies and quacks. In his new book, Bad Pharma (4th Estate), Ben puts the $600bn global pharmaceutical industry under the microscope. What he reveals is a fascinating, terrifying mess.
Since 2003 he has written the 'Bad Science' column in the Guardian, and his book of the same title sold 400,000 copies and was published in 18 countries.
