Gardening, medical ethics, disclosure of information

In this week’s podcast: We talk to the head of science at the Royal Horticultural Society about the science of gardening and about a new competition he has launched to encourage biodiversity in gardens, called The Big Wildlife Garden; we talk to Amy Gutmann, chair of the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, about an awful breach of ethics which involved US researchers in Guatemala infecting people with sexually transmitted diseases without their consent; and, Deborah Cohen reports for the BMJ on an unprecedented disclosure of product information by a medical technology company.

Presented by Clive Cookson with Andrew Jack and Diana Garnham.
