Your Doctor May Need You – Good Thing Hubby Did Not Go To Medical School

Hubby was told by doctors/specialists – after being diagnosed with cancer and only option offered to him was chemo – “you can eat anything.”

Hubby did just the opposite – good thing he didn’t go to medical school.

Maybe you could educate your doctor about nutrition.



Only 6% or so study nutrition at medical school.

The fundamental reason why doctors do not know much about nutrition is because very few of them study anything about it at medical school. As discussed further on, this is largely because the curriculum is heavily influenced by the pharmaceutical drug industry.

Dr Ray Strand comments on his own lack of education about nutrition:

“In medical school I had not received any significant instruction on the subject. I was not alone. Only approximately 6 percent of the graduating physicians in the United States have any training in nutrition. Medical students may take elective courses on the topic, but few actually do… the education of most physicians is disease-oriented with a heavy emphasis on pharmaceuticals – we learn about drugs and why and when to use them.” (2)

Dr Ladd McNamara:

“Doctors usually make good teachers, but not good students. Most doctors fear not knowing the answers to medically-related issues, and will try to present themselves with as much authority as possible. Dietary supplements are a very foreign subject for most doctors, and most doctors show no interest in learning more. We were not taught much in medical school about the power of nutrition in medicine, only about the power of prescription drugs and surgery as treatment for diseases. The focus was on treatment and not on prevention. It is this mindset that causes most physicians to be unreceptive to new ideas in medicine.” (3)

The influence of drug companies on medical education.

A major reason why this happen is because pharmaceutical companies provide very large funds to medical school and universities. For example, consider that the Rockefeller organisation, which encompasses over 200 pharmaceutical and associated enterprises, is the largest single private source of funding for Western medical science and education. The impact of this is clearly demonstrated by an example from the first half of the twentieth century – the formative years of modern drug-based medicine. In his book Naked Empress – the Great Medical Fraud, Hans Ruesch quotes extensively from a 1948 book titled The Drug Story by Morris Bealle.

Bealle revealed that: “The last annual report of the Rockefeller Foundation itemises the gifts it has made to [medical] colleges and [government] public agencies in the past 44 years, and they total somewhat over half a billion dollars. These colleges, of course, teach their students all the drug lore the Rockefeller pharmaceutical houses want taught.(Read the Complaint Against Genocide and Other Crimes Against Humanity Committed in Connection With the Pharmaceutical ‘Business With Disease’ )”


NOTOCHEMO’S CONCLUSION:  Do a search, there are doctors who actually know what they learned in medical school cannot help them.   One is David Servan Screiber who had to go alternative to save himself when doctors told him it was hopeless.   We still refer to his book, “Anticancer”.
