The lastest survey published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition says Doctors don’t know enough about nutrition. “Only 14% [of the 54% of physicians that completed the survey] felt physicians were adequately trained to provide nutrition counseling.” Interns who did take Nutrition courses were more critical of physicians who didn’t. 77% of physicians completing the survey aggree that “nutrition assessments should be included in routine primary care visits”.
