    Interesting article. I am always a bit disappointed that doctors fare so poorly when it comes to their knowledge of "healthy nutrition"....but then again their was no mention of what types of doctors were questioned. I would bet that the survey would look different if all dietitians had been surveyed....and I bet their are some "cultural differences" that may not have been accounted for, but still I was surprised that I actually answered the questions correctly....Guess I have learned a bit since I lost my weight....icon_biggrin.gif

    me thinks that the day medicine will take each one of us and examine exactly how our particular body functions in the smallest details, then they will be able to tell us exactly how each one should eat, rest,train etc.
    Till then, all those empirical observations , while interesting, remain of anecdotal interest because no matter what positions scientists take with nutrition, ultimately they never "really" know.
