Killer Selfies : How Selfies Kill People, with Dr. Roger Byard



It’s Killer Selfies Time! ;)

Hi guys,

Have you listened to my podcast on killer selfies yet? It’s exactly what it sounds like: Selfies that have killed people.

The world has an obsession with selfies, and while there are many elements to analyze from a health and wellness perspective, this episode of Causes or Cures focuses on killer selfies.

In this Causes Or Cures episode, Dr. Roger Byard discusses the forensic elements of killer selfies. Click to listen to find out who’s most at risk, the countries with the highest rate of selfie deaths and how they are responding, and some of the more dramatic examples of selfie deaths. I won’t lie: Some are worthy of Darwin awards. Dr. Byard dives into other interesting tidbits on how our obsession with selfies is impacting our physical and mental well-being. His story about his father who has dementia is especially telling.

Dr. Byard is a forensic pathologist and Professor of Pathology at The University of Adelaide. He has written over 700 papers in peer-reviewed journals and is the Editor-in-Chief of Forensic Science Medicine and Pathology. If you watch The History Channel, you might have seen him recently featured in Lawless: The Real Bushrangers. He also has a book coming out called The Pathology of Old Age, that I can’t wait to read.

Click to listen all about Killer Selfies! Consider subscribing to my podcast, too, as I plan on having a plethora of interesting people on in the future, and I’ve already featured many brilliant minds with brilliant stories and wisdom about current health topics and health risks. Admittedly, I was slow to post a podcast this past month, because I’ve been busy with work and writing two books. One is a parody on the wellness industry and the other is a fictional book about a girl caught between two worlds. I try to write two chapters a night, but that means other things don’t get done. You know how it is- time management! Sigh! ;)
