How about a change in curriculum? It's already crowded, I know, but if we are to truly embrace Hippocrates; “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”, then nutrition training which is pretty much non-existent currently, needs to be stepped up.
Why not take a further step forward and make the essentials of cooking fundamental to medical training? Then maybe we'd begin to move away from 'nutritionism' (what Ben Goldacre calls the 'Bollocks du jour') to putting real food back in the spotlight.
"FAT IS OUR FRIEND" ADVOCATES A DIET:
Sammy Pepys was the pseudonym used by James Capon when writing this book. He is not a doctor or a nutritionist but has studied nutrition and holds an MPH from Edinburgh University. Over the years, he has become increasingly suspicious of today's conventional wisdom about diet and health. When it comes to what we eat, he has helped many learn to eat more healthily.
