The MindBodySpirit Festival touts itself as “Australia’s largest health & wellbeing event”.
Attendees are invited to “see over 200 experts, attend seminars, see a psychic, meditate and more!”
This episode we head down to the festival to see the range of woo on offer and how many ‘health’ claims vendors can make without interference from the Therapeutic Goods Administration.
This episode features Richard Saunders from the Australian Skeptics and Adjunct Professor Ken Harvey, a public health physician with an interest in the regulation of therapeutic goods.
