I’m looking at the list of “Nutrition Experts” at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition – The World’s Largest Nutrition School. The only one on the list that I would take any advice about nutrition is David Wolfe, and it’s because he’s the only raw foodist on the list that I know of. Andrew Weil MD, Joel Fuhrman MD, Howard Lyman, Mark Hyman MD, Bernie Siegel MD, Barry Sears PhD, Neal Barnard MD, Deepak Chopra, Arthur Agatston MD (South Beach Diet)? Are you kidding me? These are ALL big name medical doctors, just like Dr. J. Mercola, that constantly refer to studies that highlight this nutrient or that nutrient.
They don’t know anything about real nutrition or that health, true health, can ONLY come from living on a vegan diet of raw fruits and vegetables. They chip around the edges just like the rest of the medical establishment. (For the record, The South Beach Diet is the worse diets imaginable – second to the Atkins Diet.) This collection of medical fools couldn’t tell you what to do to be healthy if they wanted to. Most medical doctors can’t even get their own symbol straight (see The Caduceus vs. Staff of Asclepius. What a joke!
Save your money, visit your local farmer’s market and when you get home, DON’T COOK YOUR FOOD! That’s my advice anyway. And as far as the medical establishment and their own symbol which they don’t seem to know which to use. My favorite is at the left from Zazzle.
