Angela Rippon and Kevin Duala try to sort out the mixed media messages behind the health headlines. Today, on the hunt for the best way of looking after yourself, Angela goes to the gym to find out whether weights improve fitness more than aerobic exercise like running, walking or swimming. Kevin meets some women who have been scared off hormone replacement therapy by fears that it might cause breast cancer, and, amid media claims that it’s just quackery, Steve Brown investigates the truth behind Europe’s oldest complementary therapy, homeopathy.
