The nutritional and informational value of food is often ignored by conventional medicine, and ignoring it can lead to severe and expensive chronic diseases.
Unfortunately, most currently practicing physicians received less than 16 hours of education on nutrition during medical school. Often, dietary guidelines and recommendations were delegated to the dietitians. Unfortunately, the dietitians were heavily sponsored by Big Food, and the guidelines promote high frequency of feeding (six small meals), carbohydrate-oriented consumption (>150 g/D), grain orientation, and omega-6 industrial seed oils.
These guidelines don’t take into consideration the role of processed foods. Ignoring a lifetime of subsidized ultra-processed food leads to severe expensive chronic diseases.
