BBC2: trust me I'm a doctor 8pm


As well as food after sell by dates, ...

What do garlic, watermelon and beetroot have in common, apart from being edible? They are all so-called superfoods, of course, and are said to have the power to reduce blood pressure. Seeing as millions of people suffer from alarming levels of stress, guzzling these down could be beneficial - but are the claims valid?

Dr Chris van Tulleken is determined to sort out the fact from the hype in the second episode of the series. Michael Mosley also has food on his mind, and in his case it's something that many people crave - sugar. It's been suggested that it is as toxic as tobacco, but is that true?


Michael visits leading experts to find out. Plus, Dr Saleyha Ahsan explodes some of the myths surrounding the best way to treat burns

The people who tried it for a week or more got got sick of it. :) Garlic and beetroot worked much better.
