"Listen, I'm an actress who's lived in LA over 20 years. Obviously, I love to charge my crystals by the light of a full moon while dabbing essential oils behind my ears! But when it comes to my actual health, and my family's health, I don't need the wellness woo words of an Instagram influencer, I need a real doctor to tell me what is up. And I would trust Dr. Seema Yasmin with my life, and I have. She's brilliant!"

"I could listen to Seema Yasmin forever. Her background in medicine and communications with first-hand experience in the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) at the CDC, make Dr. Yasmin a formidable presence in the public domain during these times of COVID-19. She sets a gold standard on how to convey tough news."

"Examining myths and pseudoscience across multiple domains—including medicine, culture, climate, and nutrition—Viral BS will appeal to anyone who is interested in getting at the truth."

"Addressing a whole range of claims related to medicine and science, Viral BS draws on good evidence to explain what is and is not true and explore why people believe misinformation. A fun, practical book written in an engaging, personal style."

"Brilliant, hilarious, infuriating, and illuminating, Viral BS is essential reading for anyone with a brain and internet access."

"[Yasmin] analyzes the pseudoscience that becomes hard to shake and reviews related research that presents the truth. The antidote is easy to swallow, thanks to Yasmin's approach."
