Nutrition Follow Up

Given the interest in Monday’s panel on nutrition, we wanted to provide a few resources from Drs. Stratton, Sutherlun, and Crowe for your additional review. While our schedules in residency may not lend themselves to a great deal of free time, this is a topic that benefits you as well as your patients. If you have a strong interest in the topic feel free to reach out to any of our panellists.

    “The most important take-home message with diet and health is that anyone who ever expresses anything with certainty is basically wrong, because the evidence for cause and effect in this area is almost always weak and circumstantial…” – Ben Goldacre

    I would encourage everyone to do their own review of the nutrition literature and decide for themselves.
    What was advocated at the wellness conference was a Whole Food Plant Based way of eating not a vegan lifestyle. The “skepdoc” article you linked can’t seem to separate the two. This makes me skeptical of the authors intentions as she seems to make a living being contrary.

    I agree, everyone should do their own review of nutrition and decide for themselves.

    I only provided Dr. Harriet’s opinion of Dr. Greger because he is an author of 2 of the 9 links provided for resources related to the discussion at the wellness conference. I’d invite everyone to check out sciencebasedmedicine.org, they don’t make a living being contrarians, but their authors “are all medically trained and have spent years writing for the public about science and medicine, tirelessly advocating for high scientific standards in health care.” They’re mostly harsh on alternative medicine, or other claims that sound greater than what the actual scientific scrutiny suggests.
