Food as Medicine – When the Prescription Is a Recipe
Many health concerns can be traced to a poor diet. This is a great New York Times post article highlighting the problem that exists between medical schools and the vast majority of conventional doctors not connecting the dots between health concerns and nutrition.
“Some medical schools have even introduced culinary curriculums to train more doctors to talk to patients about food… poor food choices can be the root of many seemingly unrelated issues.”
“Only 27 percent of medical schools in the United States offer students the recommended 25 hours of nutritional training, according to the medical journal Academic Medicine. And in a recent study in the American Journal of Medicine involving 930 cardiologists, less than a third described their nutrition knowledge as “mostly up-to-date” or better.”
