Day 125- Nutrition Bite

Dr. Weil states that he received no education in nutrition during his studies at Harvard Medical School. He further mentions that nutritional training in medical schools is almost nonexistent and physicians are nutritionally illiterate.

Sugar Preacher's Experience
I have heard from several physicians that they received minimal nutritional education in medical school. Many diseases can be prevented with proper diet and exercise. Therefore, I reccomend the curriculum for a physician's program should include nutritional training. If you are receiving nutritionally advice from a physician, you may wish to ask for credentials.
