Drugs Versus Healthy Lifestyle Interview

In 2011 Mark took part in a live radio discussion on BBC Radio Kent giving which was asking the question “Do people take too many drugs?“. The debate had been sparked by a news article that proposed that combinations of routine drugs could be depleting people of important chemicals in their body leading to Alzheimers and dementia.
