Low-Carb Nutrition Penetrating Medical Education Through Renegade Students

Filed under: Health — @ April 7, 2010

The medical and nutrition education systems in the United States are still wading knee deep in the muckity muck of conventional wisdom with what they are teaching tomorrow’s health care providers. We’re well into the 21st Century, but they’re still passing on decades-old information to these poor students as if it is revolutionary and new. The ones who suffer from such erroneous information are ultimately all the future patients that these doctors, nurses, and dietitians will later impact as they progress through their career. It’s sad to think that all we are learning about healthy high-fat, adequate protein, low-carbohydrate nutrition is being totally ignored by the institutions of higher learning in health.

But I do see a light at the end of the tunnel and it’s burning brightly with individuals who are forging ahead through the darkness of these current state of affairs by sharing openly about the principles they have learned about what truly constitutes healthy living. There are people out there right now in nursing school and pursuing a degree to become a registered dietitian who are being that beacon of hope that real change is coming in the medical profession. It won’t happen overnight, but the powerful impact these students and future leaders of their field will have cannot be underestimated. I hear from them all the time via e-mail and today I’d like to share with you a couple of these to encourage you that livin’ la vida low-carb is indeed alive and well and swelling up among the ranks of the next wave of servants getting into various areas of public health.

Click here to be encouraged by a nursing student as well as someone who is in a graduate program to become a registered dietitian who understand the great importance of low-carb nutrition on health.
