Traditional Chinese Medicine presented alongside a doctor and a dentist in the episode "Putting the Mouth Back in the Body" normalizes and legitimizes dangerous, superstitious thinking. Please bring your podcast up to the 19th century by promoting health practices that have been demonstrated to be effective. Superstition kills people by delaying needed treatment. Consider increasing your journalistic standards.
