    Default Trust me I'm a Doctor - Don't!

    Hi all
    I don't know if any of you caught the episode on Wed night. Watch between 12-18 mins in (probably only available in UK).

    I was struggling to find anything trustworthy within those few minutes. No balance, no evidence presented for sweeping claims, no conflicts covered, using a US photo to talk about a UK programme (UK farming is a whole different ball game), interviewing a vegan and not giving balance to the vegan agenda, no warnings about the nutritional deficiencies of the EAT Lancet diet. It was shocking.

    I've sent in a complaint - mine was too long, so I had to post a letter. If any of you feel inspired to do the same, please do. My complaint is here and then you can use any of my arguments and/or share your own. Do share any thoughts here too.

    Very best wishes - Zoe

    Nice one Zoe, and Mat.

    I rarely watch TV these days and especially avoid programs such as this in order to maintain a healthy blood pressure! Otherwise, I would also write a complaint.

    Love it Zoe. Like Stephen, I try not to watch programs like this any more and I am sick of all aspects of the media making sweeping statements without anyone challenging them. Thank you for taking the time to challenge it.
