CFI is proud to welcome Timothy Caulfield to Toronto on April 15th. to discuss his explosive new book “Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything? When Celebrity Culture and Science Clash” challenges pseudoscientific and sometimes dangerous advice from celebrities.
Timothy spent a year not only extensively researching and talking to a myriad of experts, but also trying some celebrity-recommended health, diet and beauty routines. And he will be giving a vivid recounting of his experiences in attempting these pseudoscientific remedies and practices, and discuss the benefits, if any, and detriments of such programs.
Timothy and his new book are making a difference with headlines such as “How Science tells us to Ignore Celebrity Endorsements“ New Scientist, and “Caulfield Offers Straight-Forward, Science-Based Advice for Health and Wellness“ MetroNews Canada. He is also in high demand for media interviews. Recent Canadian interviews can be found in the Ottawa Citizen, Edmonton Journal, Huffington Post, CBC Radio’s The Current, Toronto Star, Globe and Mail and many more.
The speaking engagement, “When Celebrity Culture and Science Clash”, will give attendees an extremely informative take on everything from holistic medicines to fad diets, from the mouth of the acclaimed Timothy Caulfield, the Research Director of the Health Law Institute at the University of Alberta. The event is a single feature speaking engagement, and everyone who is interested in critical thought, the health debate or science in general is invited to attend.
