Enemies of Reason: The Irrational Health Service

The second and last part of the series "Enemies Of Reason". "Prof Richard Dawkins looks at how health has become a battleground between reason and superstition. A third of us now spend a total of over 1.6 billion a year on superstitious alternative remedies, but 80% of them have never been subjected to properly conducted trials."
"Alternative medicines either haven't been tested or it has failed it's tests"

yeah, there could be more science in it. For non-science people it still not perfectly clear what science is.

But defintely worth watching. much more fun than my exams :)
