Woeful
4 January 2019 | by rymerwsSee all my reviews

This is hopefully the final nail in the coffin for project fear. people across the world are becoming more and more educated and are understanding the need to review the scientific quality of their sources, and to practise critical thinking. This documentary presents a similar level of intellect as demonstrated in flat-earth documentaries. Unfortunately the programme is well produced, and as such has managed to present misleading science lingo in a way that is designed to con and frighten people with chronic disease. The movie promotes the removal of teeth, and you will see the presenter and e-motion advising people on every social media forum including Facebook and YouTube to remove their teeth and that implants,bridges or dentures would be better. The movie begins with the presenter explaining that he was on a booze fuelled holiday when the injury to his tooth first occurred, Nowhere in the intro where he explained he tried 'everything' including cannabis, crystals and acupuncture does it mention that he tried cognitive behavioural therapy for his depression/anxiety.

This is a train crash from start to finish. It preys on the scientific novice, and is about as useful as a juice cleanse.
