Education...not Medication

I had a chance to see this movie over the holiday weekend on Netflix Streaming. It was very good. It talked a lot about using nutrition as medicine, a topic that interests me. A few key points from this documentary that stood out for me were the following:
  • Less than 6% of graduating physicians receive formal training in nutrition
  • Good health makes a lot of sense, but it doesn't make a lot dollars
  • 2 handfuls of cashews give you a therapeutic dose of Prozac
  • What's going on in the mind can be influenced by the nutrients in foods
