I just read an interesting editorial in “The Green Journal”– The American Journal of Medicine (a prestigious medical journal) suggesting that perhaps we should quit emphasizing organic chemistry for pre-med students, and require a course on nutrition(!) I know I had very little if any training in nutrition in medical school. I’ve learned a lot just from the 2 conferences this year I have attended. Best food to eat, bottom-line? watch this 3 minute video: “Optimal Diet: Just give it to me straight, Doc”
The Lancet medical journal has also come out with a recent article stating that meat can increase the risk of colon cancer by 16%. Wow, that has rocked the meat industry. They are already trying to put the spin on it, making fun with the statements like- breathing air can cause cancer.
