    Please feel free to post any ask-the-doctor type questions here in the comments section and I’d be happy to try to answer them. Be sure to check out all the videos on the medical profession and medical education, including Monday’s corresponding blog post Nutrition education in medicine: A doctor a day keeps the apples away.

  • It is frightening to me that there would even be a question about this. I can’t believe that Doctors wouldn’t be asking for this training themselves!
    I have very little faith in the Medical profession that only knows how to treat with pills. Sad.

  • My heart breaks for all the obese children, and all the children who’ll lose parents to heart disease, cancer, diseases largely preventable with diet. It boggles my mind all the plants and animals that will go extinct for the sake of all this misguided meat consumption.

    Thank you Dr. McDougall. I believe you’ll break through. This website is a great way to get more nutrition facts out there.

    I just wish that I could listen to these videos on my smart phone, instead of just the home computer (my experience is that the videos spend too much time buffering, and halt constantly, on the smart phone). Then I could listen to them when I have a few spare minutes in the day. Does anyone know if there’s a way to turn off the video part and just hear the sound?

      You can pause the video while it buffers and when it has completed its download you play it without it stuttering. Turning off the video is not possible and would not help. The audio is contained within the video file and the whole file needs to be downloaded, not just the audio, in order to access the audio portion. I agree with your first and second paragraphs.

    These are educated people that cannot make a right ,and moral decision to protect all of Californians even his own parents.The money that he gets from Health Associations is what worry’s him.Republicans are full of crap and i hate to say that I’m a Republican.
    I guess money is more important than doing the right and moral thing, I guess that is what he learned from his mother , father,schools,and life.

    This is shocking and disappointing. What is a good way to find a physician who is treating patients and who is also well educated on how to cure chronic disease through nutrition?
