Nutrition and Medical School

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.

The research is coming in very heavy, in favor of a whole-plant based diet as the overall best diet for humans….something that so far is not even taught to medical students. IMG_1909

About Dr. Greg Meyer

I'm a homeopathic physician, an urgent care physician, camper, hiker, traveler, and photographer. After Microbiology & Epidemiology, I studied medicine and more recently have become fascinated on how homeopathy can actually cure disease, or better said-how it allows the body to actually heal itself. I'm available for consultations in classical homeopathy. Check my website for more information.

    Me again….maybe they don’t teach nutrition because there is so much misinformation and changing of stances every few years, it may be impossible to avoid conflicts!! Also, testing can be geared to whatever anyone wants to prove and the data can be massaged to make the results look as you want them to look. 😕
