"We can prevent our life-saving medicines being rendered useless by making simple changes in our own lives" Dr Alice Brough, star of The End of Medicine - produced by Alex Lockwood

From executive producers Joaquin Phoenix (Joker) and Rooney Mara (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), The End of Medicine is a new feature length documentary that exposes the underreported link between global pandemics, the failing of antibiotics and our use of animals.

The film follows former factory farm livestock vet and whistleblower Dr. Alice Brough, who we chat to today, as she grapples with the enormity of animal agriculture and the key role it has played historically and currently in not only killer diseases and pandemics, but climate change and environmental destruction as well.

With expert interviews from industry insiders, government advisors, politicians, premiere scientists and leading doctors, The End Of Medicine sounds the alarm few have heard.

Directed by BAFTA-winning filmmaker Alex Lockwood (73 Cows), who also joins us for this episode, and producer Keegan Kuhn (Cowspiracy, What The Health), The End Of Medicine examines the often ignored WHO and CDC warnings that if we don’t change, we are at the end of medicine as we know it.

US viewers can watch now on AppleTV/iTunes. The film will be available to watch in the UK in spring 2022.
