ENCORE: Are your implantable devices sabotaging your health? Part 1
December 31, 2020
Are your implantable devices sabotaging your health? Award-winning investigative journalist Jeanne Lenzer joins us to discuss her book, "The Danger Within Us: America’s Untested, Unregulated Medical Device Industry and One Man’s Battle to Survive."

And why is the treatment sometimes worse than the disease? What should every potential device recipient know before getting anything permanently implanted in their body? Click HERE for part 2.
