Les Aventures du Pharmachien S1, 2 & 3

Les aventures du Pharmachien is a documentary series that goes after mistruths and popular beliefs about health.

Les aventures du Pharmachien is a documentary series that goes after mistruths and popular beliefs on health issues. A creative and fascinating world which showcases a funny and incisive host, the Pharmachien, who is on a mission to differentiate truth from nonsense.

Les aventures du Pharmachien (a play on the words pharmacist and watchdog) analyses mistruths and popular beliefs about health with incisive humour. Inspired by the successful blog, the series focuses each week on a preoccupation of pharmacist Olivier Bernard, a.k.a. le Pharmachien.

Are GMOs dangerous for your health? Is milk a deadly poison? Is your intestine really your second brain? These are the kinds of questions Olivier will tackle in season 2, with the help of unusual tests, wicked interviews and reliable literature reviews.

Imitating the very colourful style of the blog, Les aventures du Pharmachien proposes a creative and fascinating world where special effects, animations and fact-based explanations come together to differentiate truth from nonsense about health issues.
