Professor Timothy Caulfield is an unrivaled communicator who debunks myths and assumptions about innovation in the health sector—from research on stem cells to diets to alternative medicine—for the benefit of the public and decision-makers. In the world premiere, a VisionTV six-part documentary series A User’s Guide to Cheating Death, follow renowned health expert, author and debunker extraordinaire Caulfield as he travels the globe to explore the clash between science and pop culture.
Just how far will we go to look good and live forever?
The anti-aging industry is worth almost $10 billion a year. People want to live forever, and they want to look good while doing it. But how much of it actually works? And is any of it harmful?
A User’s Guide to Cheating Death is a documentary series that casts light on increasingly controversial procedures, diets and revived ancient therapies that are being sought by people desperate to dramatically alter their bodies or radically improve their health, and the booming industries that are more than happy to accept their business.
Timothy does not underestimate the power that health and beauty trends hold – in fact he knows its influence on society better than anybody! Believing that in order to bust the myth, you must first understand it, Timothy will follow the latest fads and trends to their origins around the world.
Timothy will hear the stories of both new users and the devotees who swear by the treatments, and sign himself up for the bizarre procedures himself. He risks his health and personal safety in order to communicate one simple and necessary idea – staying healthy should not be this complicated.
Watch the world premiere on Vision TV September 18!
