Roberto Burioni
Balle mortali (Deadly Lies)
Rizzoli, October 2018, 192 pages

“In spring 2016, Burioni sat down, fired up his laptop and began debunking anti-vaccination conspiracy theories on his public Facebook page.” Time

“In a world overflowing with dangerous lies it is important to know the truth in order to combat obscurantism.”

A child dies from otitis treated with homeopathy instead of antibiotics. A woman succumbs to a melanoma because instead of an oncologist she relied on the German New Medicine. A child whose parents were against vaccines barely survives a tetanus infection. And then there are the patients deceived by the Stamina method stem-cell treatment and the Di Bella cancer cure… In his new book Roberto Burioni defends science, experimental tests, and precise data by closely examining ten dangerous lies that jeopardize our health, that of our children, and the whole community – because in the medical field, fake news can kill, and it is a civic duty to unmask such false information.
