Podcast: Health for the unhealthy

Can you eat a bag of crisps a day without getting fat? Is being an active exerciser and being overweight better than sitting still and being thin? Should I smoke e-cigarettes or snuff?

Health for the unhealthy is produced by Marie Söderqvist who is responsible for the public health programme area at EPHI.
