Health Bites: Plant-Based Nutrition and Changing Medical Paradigms

Dr. Ted Barnett, M.D., F.A.C.L.M.

Why do changes in our scientific knowledge take so long to be put into medical practice? Why do we still treat most heart disease with drugs and procedures? Why was radical mastectomy the standard of care for breast cancer patients for almost 100 years? What happened to the physician who first proposed that we should wash our hands before examining a patient? These and other interesting questions will be explored during this lively presentation. Q&A to follow.

Excellent presentation on plant-based nutrition. I applaud the efforts of Dr. Barnett for living his advice and helping others with their health needs. I also applaud UR for offering this presentation. Thank you.

I applaud this presentation and RocLifeMed in general. It's one thing to talk about lifestyle changes that result in health and it's another to implement them. Thanks for your leadership!

I thought it was very interesting, and I learned a lot. I wish they focused more on the food part of it because I was already sold on the reasoning :) Maybe another?
