T. Colin Campbell PhD
October 5th featured, world-renowned T. Colin Campbell PhD. the father of the Whole Food Plant-based movement.
T. Colin Campbell's presentation topic was Why Is Nutrition Not Considered A Medical Science?
During the presentation he broached the topic of unfortunately except for a few medical schools offering a few meaningless lectures on nutrition, none takes seriously nutrition as part of the medical school curricula. Also, it is virtually impossible for primary care doctors and nurses to be adequately compensated for offering nutrition advice to patients. This denigration of nutrition as a medical science has been consistent through the 1900s. Yet nutrition, when properly understood and used can do more for personal health than all the pills and procedures combined.
