About Us

The Best Science (BS) Medicine Podcast is a weekly presentation where practitioners can get evidence-based drug therapy content that is practical, entertaining and promotes healthy scepticism. In essence, we are the Medication Mythbusters. We present information that is useful and relevant to physicians, pharmacists, nurses, physician assistants and other health professionals, and that can easily be incorporated into day-to-day practice. The podcast is presented by Dr. James McCormack, Professor in the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of British Columbia and Dr Michael Allan, Associate Professor in the Department of Family Practice at the University of Alberta. For more about us and to get the show notes for each episode, visit our website at www.bsmedicine.com or www.medicationmythbusters.com

Episode 457: Who let the Gout Out? Targeting Uric Acid Levels in Treating Gout

In episode 457, James and Mike yet again invite Joey Ton to go through the evidence around reaching a target serum urate level in patients with gout. As with many arbitrary thresholds determined from observational studies (sometimes), or just made up, when you properly study if there is a benefit to achieving these levels the theory really crumbles under the weight of the evidence.

Episode 454: Exercise-induced osteoarthritis: Running into problems?

In episode 454, James and Mike invite Adam Keough to go through all the evidence around the impact of long-term running. We find out that recreational running likely does not increase the risk of developing osteoarthritis but high-level elite athletes may have an increased risk. Interestingly, exercise is one of the most effective treatments for reducing osteoarthritic pain.

Episode 453: Does baby know best? Baby-led weaning for transitioning to solid foods

In episode 453, James and Mike invite Jessica Kirkwood to go over all the evidence for transitioning infants to solid foods using a baby-led weaning approach versus traditional spoon feeding. Overall, it really didn’t make much difference which approach was used. But listen to hear us take a bite out of all the nuances and context. Show notes
