Patients – or those who want to avoid becoming patients – must take the initiative to stay informed. The correlations between countless health problems and diet are well documented, yet many medical practitioners are either unaware or fail to communicate this you. Far too often, non-nutritional treatments of dubious effectiveness are recommended instead.
The medical and nutrition topics below are updated regularly to help answer your most common questions about health-related issues and food. Dr. McDougall offers his personal take on each issue, followed by related McDougall newsletter articles, success stories and independent research.
