Comment on Think doctors know about nutrition? Think again by Georgina M.
Accompanying my friend to medical appointments really opened my eyes about this. She has breast cancer and when she asked her oncologist about diet changes that could help her he told her that the only thing she needs to worry about is eating even when she doesn’t have an appetite because of the treatment, so she doesn’t lose weight. He even went on to recommend some high-fat, high-calorie junk foods and encouraged her to drink sodas.
