Episode 1

Going behind the headlines to answer health questions. This time, Michael Mosley and the team investigate if you can be fat and fit as well as other recent health questions.

Going behind the headlines to give you the definitive answers to your health questions. Can you be fat and fit? Could you improve your health by staying in bed longer? Should we all be taking an Aspirin pill to help us live longer? Michael Mosley is joined by a team of doctors who use their expertise to get to the bottom all those health claims.

Dr Chris van Tulleken examines what diseases lurk on Britain's hands; Dr Saleyha Ahsan has some simple tips that could allow you to save a life; and surgeon Gabriel Weston witnesses brain surgery without a knife.
