The Pharmacist III

Datsit

Synopsis

The Parmacist  brings sharp humour to the examination of popular misconceptions and old wives’ tales in the field of health. Inspired by a successful blog, the series looks at a new issue every week in the company of pharmacist Olivier Bernard, alias le Pharmachien.

Is osteopathy scientifically sound? Should we be worried about Lyme Disease? Is heavy metal poisoning a significant danger? Are antibiotics used wisely? These are the kinds of questions that Oliver will try to answer in Season 3, using a repertoire of unorthodox tests, hard-nosed interviews and trusted scientific publications.

Like the highly entertaining blog, Les aventures du Pharmachien delves into a fascinating field, seeking to distinguish, once and for all, “between truth and nonsense when it comes to health.”
