Comment on Think doctors know about nutrition? Think again by Sarah Best.
Because when doctors don’t know about nutrition – as most don’t – they prescribe their patients drugs to mask symptoms that could be eliminated through dietary changes. Only those with a detailed understanding of nutrition can give the best advice to patients with the chronic illnesses doctors spend most of their time “treating”.
I agree doctors are put on a pedestal and should not be. But until orthodox medicine is used only for treating traumas and other medical emergencies, with everything else treated by holistic practitioners doctors’ lack of nutrition knowledge/education is doing patients a great disservice.

Thank you, Daniel. And agreed. Fellow Dr Fuhrman fan here 🙂
Thank you so much for sharing that.
Yes, it is devastating to miss the love of a father.
And it’s not made any easier by the fact that this is so little talked about and understood.
But for what it’s worth, in the four years since I began writing about this topic I’ve heard from SO many women who feel just as you do.
That’s why I started my free email series on the father-daughter relationship, which is designed to answer the very questions you posed, and which I see you’ve signed up for. I hope you’ll find it helpful.
Thanks again for the share.

Thank you for commenting, Miriam. I’d forgotten that I recommended agave in this article and I’ve made a note to revise it, as I have since revised my views – very much in line with what you wrote, in fact! I blogged about that here: http://www.sarahbesthealth.com/is-agave-syrup-a-healthy-alternative-to-sugar/ I still consider brown rice syrup a great choice since it’s essentially fructose free. As for research on the impact on emotional and mental wellbeing of consuming a high-sugar diet, I couldn’t agree more! And I personally think that what’s come out on this so far is just the tip of the iceberg 🙂
