Doctors need more training in Nutrition

An Article from the Journal of American College of Nutrition shows although 77% of doctors who participated in the study agreed that a nutrition assessment should be included in routine primary care visits, and 94% agreed that it was their obligation to discuss nutrition with patients, only 14% felt physicians were adequately trained to provide nutrition counseling.
Good article, worth the read.
