Doctors do not have nutritional training- BBC


If you think your doctor is an expert on nutrition just because he/she is a doctor- YOU ARE WRONG!! Yes the "code" has been broken
.
Today's article by BBC news has uncovered the lack of nutrition training in medical school. Medical students say they currently learn almost nothing about the way diet and lifestyle affect health - and they should be taught more.
.
Dr Michael Mosley, presenter of BBC One's Trust Me I'm A Doctor, said, "Unfortunately it's not part of the traditional training. At medical school I learnt almost nothing about nutrition. And I have a son at medical school and it's again not part of his key curriculum. "So I don't get the sense that there are lots of doctors out there who feel empowered to tell patients much about nutrition.
.
This month, the British Medical Journal announced it will launch a journal on the science and politics of nutrition in June 2018.
.
Dr Fiona Godlee, editor-in-chief of the BMJ, told me, "It's time we recognised that food and nutrition are core to health. There is a growing body of research out there that needs to be published - and we want to contribute to that effort."
.
As a doctor, do you agree with this article? Let's discuss.
