Description:

On 9 February 2016, an expert panel of speakers, chaired by Andrew Neil, discussed 'Can we trust health advice?'  at The Spectator's annual health debate.

Every day we face many decisions about how to maintain a healthy life. What foods should we eat? How often should we exercise? How much alcohol is it safe to consume? Who should we turn to for health and wellbeing advice and can we really trust what health professionals and the government tell us?

The 200 members of the audience listened to both sides of the debate from the speakers:

Dr Ellie Cannon, resident GP for The Mail on Sunday and author of Keep Calm: The New Mum’s Manual
Dr Michael Fitzpatrick, GP and author of The Tyranny of Health
Dr Richard Harding, member of the 1995 Inter-Departmental Working Group on Sensible Drinking
Dr Christian Jessen, broadcaster, writer and medic
Dr Max Pemberton, editor of Spectator Health
• Chris Snowdon, head of lifestyle economics, Institute of Economic Affairs
