I am a big fan of having people eat a healthy diet. The best of all possible worlds, doctors would know more about diet and have the time to talk with/educate their patients about this. Additionally everyone would have access to a nutritionist/Registered dietitian and access to healthy foods. Lastly, people would not buy into fad diets or believe all of the mis information out there. Here is a list of some things to keep in mind.
Just something to think about.
Fairly often I see articles claiming sugar causes cancer, or that something else causes it. I figured I’d post this for people to read.
In an earlier post I asked where people get their health information. In this post I’m just listing some more websites people can get some unbiased health information:
If a couple of the links sound familiar, it’s because I used the phrase ” Talking with your doctor” as a title of a much earlier blog post. Of note, I wasn’t aware of the above links when I wrote my original blog post.
While I don’t have any answers as to universal health care coverage, whether there should be one payer or many. However it’s nice to see something that shows a positive effect for having insurance.
This site is a reminder to take a lot of “advice”, or at least some headlines, with a grain of salt. In earlier posts I’ve gone over a bit as to where to get health information and things to think about when evaluating claims (Here are the posts: Where do you get your health information? and Evaluating Health Care Claims ). This link talks about some of the more common myths that still make rounds a lot on the internet.
For me this is an exiting and interesting story. As I have said in earlier posts, exercise is important. This just reinforces the notion that exercise, even if started later in life, does help health. I won’t wax poetic about how exercise is a “veritable fountain of youth” as I try to avoid being overly dramatic with health care claims.
