Desire vs. detriment.
Renowned professor, lawyer, writer and health policy expert Timothy Caulfield is a self-described “celebrity junkie” who has gone to great lengths to research the lure and often dangerous impact of celebrity-enforced health claims. The best-selling Canadian author of Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong about Everything? When Celebrity Culture and Science Clash, gives readers humourous yet serious insight on pop culture’s frightening grip on society, even recounting his ill-fated attempts at extreme detoxes and beauty regimens.
In this special speaking engagement, Timothy Caulfield reveals the lengths people go to, to achieve extreme extrinsic goals based on aesthetics as opposed to optimal health.
