Wednesday House Call, November 13, 2019: Bad Batches, Bad medical practice, and greed reigns supreme.
Dr Barry Dworkin joins Matt Harris to discuss the latest health stories of the week.
We talk about an excellent podcast called Bad Batch. It reviews the state of stem cells treatments offered in the United States and exposes the greed and lack of regulation that has contributed to patient harm.
We expand the discussion to the morals and ethics of people who participate in offering these treatments to take advantage of desperate and vulnerable people looking to help their loved ones and themselves.
