A commentary published in the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine outlines six important nutrition topics all clinicians must know to promote good health. Plant-based diets offer clinicians improved treatment and prevention methods for weight loss, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and COVID-19. A focus on these topics in medical education would shift the focus to disease prevention and improve global health care through better nutrition.
Co-author Saray Stancic, MD, will present more about this topic at the International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine in Washington, D.C., August 18-20.
