A baby sadly recently died in the United States after her parents refused to give her a routine vitamin K shot upon birth.

Siouxsie Wiles joined Mike Puru, in for Graeme Hill, to expose hoaxes, woo and scams for what they aren’t.

When babies are born they don’t have enough vitamin K to prevent severe bleeding in the brain or intestines.

Siouxsie emphasises the importance of the vaccination.

Meanwhile, the FIFA World Cup has brought about psychic pets oncemore.

Matt Parker has started a project where you can register your pet to predict the World Cup results.

Plus, the two discuss Shawn Rice - one of the most prolific debunkers of online hoaxes being baited.

Listen to the full audio with Siouxsie Wiles above.

Weekend Variety Wireless with Mike Puru, in for Graeme Hill, 8pm - midnight Saturdays and Sundays, on RadioLIVE and streaming live to the Rova app on Android and iPhone.
