I have interviewed Dr. Christopher Labos on the topic of integrative medicine for my podcast, Within Reason. A cardiologist by training, he is studying to become a medical journalist. Like me, he has a passion for bringing scientific facts to the public in spite of the tidal wave of misinformation that washes us all up every day. He has written a piece for the blog BoringEM on why he fights the good fight:
“And every so often you do something that you’re really proud of. I just finished writing up a story for the National Post, not published yet, about how Health Canada regulates natural health products. I spent weeks researching the story, conducting interviews and poring through the pages and pages of regulations Health Canada published.
“Not many people would see that as fun, but I do. And that’s fundamentally the point I want to make here.”
You can read the whole article here. Although I can’t say too much at this time, he and I are working on a very exciting project that we hope to announce in the coming months. Watch this space!
