Natural News, one of my new most favoritest sites, has its list of 10 Biggest Healthcare Lies In America. There are no surprises there - to anyone who's ever read Health Ranger Mike Adams before. I just wanted to highlight this particular one:
Lie #3) Doctors are experts in health
Doctors don't even study health; they study disease. Modern doctors are taught virtually nothing about nutrition, wellness or disease prevention. Expecting a doctor to guide you on health issues is sort of like expecting your accountant to pilot a jet airliner -- it's simply not something he or she has ever been trained in.
That's not to say doctors aren't intelligent people. Most of them have high IQs. But even a genius can't teach you something they know nothing about.
This is an important point. One doesn't ask a 30-on-1 government school teacher for advice on homeschooling or individualized education - no matter how many *years of experience* they claim.
One doesn't ask a sharp-dressed, middle-aged, flippant real estate agent for her outlook on the housing market - nor a commission-collecting
And only a Moron would consult a pear-shaped doctor in matters of preventative *health*!
