Storyline

'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. Health law professor, writer and debunker-extraordinaire Timothy Caulfield dives deep into the science, and the social issues behind today's cutting-edge health trends in order to separate the truly good advice from the excess of high- priced placebos.
