Our Diets Are Killing Us And Doctors Aren't Trained To Help

This article was published by The Hill on October 18, 2019. It was written by Emily M. Broad Lieb, Drs. Stephen DeVries and Walter Willet What if your doctor failed to talk to you about the most important threat to your health? Wouldn't you worry about the quality of your health care? Poor quality diet is a leading cause of death in the United States, but it is unlikely that your doctor has the knowledge to even begin a meaningful conversation about your nutrition or to make an appropriate dietary referral. Most doctors lack the knowledge necessary to offer nutrition advice to patients; indeed, fewer than 14 percent of physicians report feeling equipped to advise on a diet or the connection between food and health. This is unsurprising given that,...

Under Pressure: The Hypertension Effect

Under Pressure While everyone has pressure in their lives, some are under far more severe pressure than others. High blood pressure (hypertension) is a condition in which the stress that your blood exerts on the interior of your blood vessels is significant enough to pose potential health risks over the long term. Hypertension can present in a variety of ways, and many have no symptomology at all. ​Hypertension Symptoms​ Headaches Shortness of breath Nosebleeds It is important to note that none of these can point directly to hypertension, but if the pressure is severe enough to have symptoms, it can mean that the pressure is elevated enough to pose significant risk.

It requires years of preparation.” Unknown February was Heart Health month. We all donned red and vowed to fight the number one killer of Americans. However, when you look at the statistics it seems one month is not enough to alter the magnitude of this disease. The numbers are dismal.

Despite spending over 300 billion dollars to “fight and treat “the disease we have made no progress and it appears the numbers have only increased. In 2015,...
